The 31-year-old is charged with seven misdemeanor counts of causing a child to be endangered, Chicago police said.

About 3:50 p.m., officers responded to a well-being check at an apartment that should have been vacant in the 700 block of North Trumbull Avenue, police said.

Inside the unit, officers found a 14-year-old girl, an 11-year-old boy, a 7-year-old boy, a 6-year-old girl, a 5-year-old boy, a 4-year-old girl and the 23-month-old, police said. They were all taken to St. Mary Hospital and are in good condition.
