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.
