STRATFORD, Conn. -- A Bridgeport man was arrested in Stratford after leaving his son in a hot car with the windows up on Sunday, according to the Connecticut Post.
Police responded to the parking lot of C-Town on Boston Avenue at around 6 p.m. on Sunday on a report of a child locked in a car with the windows up, the Connecticut Post reported. When they arrived, the temperature was 86 degrees and the 7-year-old boy was crying, police told the Connecticut Post.
At that time, 38-year-old David Angeski came back to the car with grocery bags and told police that he had left the boy in the car because he had refused to come into the store, according to the Connecticut Post. He said it was only a few minutes, but witnesses told police that the boy was in there for more than 20 minutes, the Connecticut Post reported.
Police told the Connecticut Post that officers asked why Angeski had left the boy in the car with no air conditioning and the windows rolled up, and he responded by asking why it mattered. Angeski was charged with leaving a child under 12 unsupervised in a motor vehicle, and released on a promise to appear in court, according to the Connecticut Post.
