A woman has reportedly been arrested after leaving her 6-week-old infant at a truck stop, according to an official press release from Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

According to Sac Sheriff, at 5:20 pm on Sunday, May 18, an employee of a local truck stop located in the 2800 block of El Centro Road called Sac Sheriff to report that a baby had been left in a carrier on the sidewalk. Deputies responded to reportedly find the employees caring for a 6-week-old female infant. Witnesses reportedly saw a male and female subject with the infant earlier, who both went separate ways and had left the truck stop about 45 minutes earlier.

The Reeds left their infant in front of this truck stop.

The infant was reportedly transported to the UCD Medical Center to be medically evaluated, and now is reportedly been placed in protective custody with Child Protective Service. Anyone having information related to this incident is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Child Abuse Bureau at 916-874-5115.
