WILMINGTON — The Wilmington Police Department arrested two men on the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 20, for combined charges of driving while intoxicated, child abuse and heroin possession.

According to WPD communications specialist Jennifer Dandron, around 8:45 a.m. WPD responded to several calls reporting two unconscious individuals parked along the 4400 block of Randall Parkway with two young children in the vehicle.

Officers arrived and attempted to wake the individuals but the doors were locked. Emergency crews broke into the driver’s side window and administered one dose of Narcan to the driver, Ahmad Baker, 26, and several doses of Narcan to the passenger, Jujuan Baker, 25.

The children, both two-year-olds, were not properly restrained in the backseat. DSS responded and released the children back to their mothers.

Ahmad Baker was charged with one count of driving while intoxicated and two counts of misdemeanor child abuse. Jujuan Baker was charged with heroin possession. According to WPD, both individuals admitted to snorting heroin containing fentanyl about an hour prior to the incident.

Both are currently being held at New Hanover County Jail.
