Police: Woman Arrested for Leaving Child in Car

Wichita Falls, Texas - A woman was arrested on Friday after she allegedly left a child in her car.

According to police, around 8:06 p.m. officers responded to a check welfare call at the parking lot of Kohl's. There, the officers encountered several people who were quick to point out a child in a car seat inside a Chevrolet Impala. One witness stated that they were waiting by the car since 7:51 p.m. for the driver to come back outside.

When officers inspected the vehicle, they found a 4-month old inside of the car, which was still running with the doors unlocked. 

Around 8:28 p.m. the driver, 23-year-old Brianna Clark, exited the store and asked officers if there was a problem. Clark explained that when she arrived at the store, the child was asleep, and she figured it would be ok to leave the child in the car.

Clark was arrested, and charged with Abandoning or Endangering a Child. CPS was called, and the child was released to another family member.

Clark has since bonded out of jail.
