A 24-year old Newark-area woman has been arrested after allegedly abandoning her baby in a car seat.

New Castle County Police say Abbie Arms, of the 200 block of North Patrice Drive in the Glasgow Court Trailer Park, has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say she left her infant child buckled in a car seat on the sidewalk in front of an abandoned residence in the 300 block of Glasgow Drive.

She told police she got distracted and walked away from the child to take a telephone call nearby.

The baby was admitted to Christiana Medical Center for observation.
