HILLSBORO, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A Beaverton mother was arrested last week after leaving her young daughter inside her car while shopping in a department store, a police spokesman confirmed Tuesday.
On Friday, a security guard at Macy’s in Hillsboro noticed a young child alone in a car and contacted police.
Soon after, Liwei Zhang, 28, was taken into custody, according to Lt. Mike Rouches with the Hillsboro Police Department.
Zhang’s 14-month-old daughter, she told Rouches, was sleeping when Zhang left to return an item at the store.
Zhang was booked into jail on charges of child neglect, criminal mistreatment and reckless endangerment.
The child was “fine and in good condition,” Rouches said.
