WEST FARMS - A Bronx family kept its 5-year-old son home from school today after he was found wandering with a stranger outside P.S. 67 yesterday.

Desmon Forbes said he was 15 minutes late to pick up his son Brandon and that a woman who was not a school employee was walking him back into the building when he arrived.

"I think that everybody that has a child in that school should get answers as to why a kid as young as this is allowed to leave school without anybody questioning where he's going," said Forbes.

Forbes said he plans to transfer his son out of the school as soon as possible.

This is the second recent incident in the borough. Another 5-year-old, who is autistic, walked out of P.S. 73 unattended just two weeks ago.
