The child had wandered about three blocks from his home when he was noticed by passers-by, police said.
He was found by police officers on the curb at the intersection of South Figueroa and West 98th Streets around 2:30 a.m., said Los Angeles police Sgt. Tim Jones. The boy was wearing pajama pants and a t-shirt, he said.
Police later located the boy's parents, Jones said.
