A man and woman from North Little Rock were arrested over the weekend after police found their infant left alone in a vehicle on a hot evening, authorities said.
Terrill Woodard, 26, and Latisha Franklin, 29, were each arrested on a charge of first-degree endangering the welfare of a minor when they returned to the vehicle.
A police officer in the area of 4830 North Hills Blvd. responded about 6:15 p.m. Saturday when a passerby alerted him that a baby was alone in an unattended vehicle in the parking lot, according to a North Little Rock police report.
The officer found the infant sweating inside the car, which had the driver's side window down, police said. The temperature outside was 87 degrees.
An ambulance was called to provide medical assistance to the baby, though the report didn't specify whether the infant suffered any injuries.
Woodard and Terrill were arrested when they walked back to the vehicle a short time later and identified themselves as the parents, police said. Woodard reportedly said they had been gone from the car only two to three minutes.
Woodard remained in the Pulaski County jail Monday in lieu of a $2,500 bond. Franklin was not listed as an inmate at the facility Monday morning.
It wasn't clear who took custody of the child.
Both suspects are due in court for a preliminary hearing Tuesday.
