Baby allegedly given to woman at Fresno gas station
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno Police are trying to figure out why a five-month old baby ended up at a gas station early Thursday morning.
The baby was dropped off at a Valero gas station on Jensen and Elm.
Fresno Police have many questions this morning as they try to get to the bottom of who this child's parents are, and how the baby girl ended up in the hands of an alleged stranger. Police are not sure yet if a crime has been committed.
The baby is safe and in care of Child Protective Services.
Just after midnight, a woman told police she was at the gas station when a white Chevy Tahoe with two or three adults inside stopped and approached her. After a conversation, they then gave her a 5-month-old baby girl in a carrier. The woman then contacted police.
Police have been interviewing the woman to determine if her story is valid. Detectives are also trying to figure out who the parents of the child are, and track down them down. They are also looking for the vehicle involved in this case.
The safely surrendered baby law allows parents or persons with lawful custody to safely surrender the infant within 72 hours of birth, with no questions asked, at safe places like a fire station, hospitals or other locations displaying a safe baby symbol.
