A young boy was reunited with his mother after police said he was found wandering alone in Dorchester early Tuesday morning.

Boston EMS says the boy, who is about 4 years old, was walking along Blue Hill Avenue just after 3 a.m. Police said he told him he was going to the store because he wanted to buy chocolate.

He was taken to Boston Medical Center to be checked out. No charges are expected to be filed.
