LOS ANGELES (AP) — The mother of a 2-year-old girl has been arrested after she allegedly left her daughter alone in a stroller during the night on a Los Angeles street.

City News Services reports the woman, whose name was not immediately released, was arrested early Monday for investigation of child abandonment.

Police say a restaurant employee saw the child sitting alone in a stroller about 2:30 a.m. The worker estimates he watched the girl sit there alone at least 15 minutes before calling police.

The mother did return, police say, and that's when she was arrested.

The girl was taken to a hospital and didn't appear to have any injuries. She is expected to be placed in protective custody.

Makes one wonder if she WANTED the child stolen--so she could keep claiming benefits and tax refunds for her "dependent."
