A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment after he left his 8-month-old daughter in a car for an hour while he went inside a North Hollywood gym, police said.
The man, identified as Solomon Allen, was arrested Friday at 10 a.m. after a passerby reported seeing an infant in a parked car in the garage of a 24-hour Fitness gym located in the 5300 block of Lankershim Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Police responded and rescued the baby girl. The infant was taken to a hospital as a precaution and is doing OK, police said.
