NEWARK, Del. (AP) - New Castle County Police have arrested a woman after her son was found alone in a car seat on the sidewalk in front of an abandoned home in Newark.
Twenty-four-year-old Abbie Arms has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. She was released on $250 unsecured bail.
Police say the infant was found in a trailer park about 2:10 p.m. Wednesday. The boy was not injured, and police searched the area for the child's mother. After finding out the name of the baby's mother, police found Arms.
Officers say Arms became distracted and left the area without her son.
The Division of Family Services took custody of the baby.
