BAY SHORE, N.Y. (AP) — A New York woman accused of leaving her 4-month-old niece inside a running car while she was inside a sandwich shop has been arrested on child endangerment charges.

Suffolk County police say the child was found unharmed in the still-running abandoned car Monday. Forty-three-year-old Gail Solomon, of Bay Shore, was arrested.

Police say Solomon stopped at a Subway in Bay Shore around 8 a.m. Monday. She told officers she looked out the window and saw a man jump in the car and drive away.

Police say the carjacker picked up two men, then dumped the car several blocks away with the baby inside.

The carjacker hasn’t been caught.

Solomon was released without bail. She has an attorney from Legal Aid, which does not comment on pending cases.
