MILWAUKEE (AP) — A suburban Milwaukee mother is charged with child neglect after her two young children were found alone in a hot car outside a Target store.
Police responded to the Target parking lot in West Allis last Sunday after a woman saw the children in the car with the windows rolled up, observed one of them playing with a shaving razor in the back seat and called the police.
A criminal complaint says the temperature at the time was 78 and the car was parked in the sun. Twenty-seven-year-old Allison Andrade, of West Allis, is charged with child neglect, obstructing police and bail jumping. The complaint says Andrade gave police a false name when she was questioned by officers.
The children, ages 2 and 4, were not seriously injured. Andrade’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call for comment.
