A Brooklyn mother has been busted for abandoning two of her daughters on a sidewalk — leaving them alone hours after she gave them a curse-filled tongue-lashing, cops and neighbors said. Dalisha Adams, 26, was charged Monday with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child for cruelly leaving Dominae, 5, and Diani, 3, in the cold, police said. A neighbor of Adams at the Breukelen Houses in Canarsie said she often heard the mom screaming at the girls and their older sister, who lives with an aunt. “She was always yelling at the kids, ‘Shut the f— up,’” said the neighbor, who did not want to be identified. “One day, I heard her curse out the little baby, ‘I’ll punch you in the f—— face,’” the neighbor said. She said she heard another blowup on Sunday, not long before the girls were found about two miles away in front of the Bay View Houses, clutching disposable diapers.SMH. Our prayers are with those poor little girls“Usually I hear the yelling at night or early in the morning, 4 or 5, but this was in the daytime,” the neighbor said. “A kid was crying. She was saying, ‘Stop crying. Shut the f— up. I’m gonna get you out of here.’” The girls told police their mother left them on the sidewalk and just drove away. An elderly couple found them wandering up and down the street. The 5-year-old told cops their mother’s name is Dalisha and that she was driving a white car but did not know the make nor model of the vehicle. Cops went door-to-door in an effort to identify the children. About 10:10 p.m. on Sunday night, police showed up to Adams’ apartment and used a crowbar to open the door, a resident said. Adams apparently was not inside. She surrendered at the 69th Precinct stationhouse around 11:30 p.m. A neighbor said the girls were usually well-dressed and clean, and Adams’ MySpace page is filled with photos of her daughters. But another resident of the housing project confirmed Adams was harsh with the kids. “She talks very dirty to the children and treats them nasty. She pulls their arm and curses at the children,” the neighbor said. “It’s not right,” she said of the abandonment. “They’re better off with someone else.” The sisters did not appear to be abused but were taken to Brookdale University Hospital as a precaution. The Administration for Children’s Services confirmed it took custody of the two younger girls but declined to say whether it had an open case on the family.
