Dad leaves baby in car while eating lunch, police say
The 5-month-old girl was found sitting in the unlocked car parked at a shopping center.
KTLA-TV Channel 5 reported a couple spotted the baby alone in the car Friday and called police. She was sweating, but unharmed.
When the father returned, he told officers he was having lunch with a friend across the street and forgot his baby was in the car.
Christopher Johnson, 18, was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment. The baby was handed over to Child Protective Services.
