A Milford woman is facing charges after she allegedly left a child unattended in a running car in Rhode island.
Police in North Smithfield say Annelise Marie Ambert left the child alone in the car at a Wal-Mart on Tuesday.
She had not arrived back at the car when police arrived, and an officer broke a front window to free the child.
The 21-year-old Ambert is charged with cruelty or neglect of a child.
Police say that with the engine running, the car could have easily been broken into and the child kidnapped.
