The body of a newborn baby girl was discovered in black trash bags in a San Bernardino alley Saturday, according to police.

A woman was cleaning up the alley on the 4300 block of Sierra Way just after noon when she discovered the remains.

Police say she was a full-term baby, possibly Hispanic, around five or six pounds and her umbilical cord was still attached.

It's unclear whether the baby was born dead or alive.

"I've got four boys. I just can't handle that, that's messed up," said San Bernardino resident Charles Woods. "That hurt me and that's no kin to me, so I don't understand how somebody can do that."

Investigators are now searching for the mother of the child. The coroner's office is helping with the investigation.
