The mother of a seven-month-old baby girl has been charged after the child was allegedly found crying in a vehicle on Sunday (July 7).
According to police, officers were called to the parking lot at the Delpark Homes Centre on Harmony Road in Oshawa after an infant was found crying in a vehicle.
“A citizen walking past the vehicle heard the baby crying. The door was unlocked, so she took the baby out and called 911. The infant was taken to hospital to be examined. Police located the mother in a nearby park with her other small children,” reads a media release from the DRPS.
“The child was cleared medically and turned over to her father.”
A 32-year-old woman from Oshawa has been charged with abandoning a child and criminal negligence. She was released on a promise to appear.
“Her name is being withheld to protect the children’s identity,’ the press release reads.
