Personal Trainer Leaves Infant Daughter In Unlocked Car During Work Out With Client
A California personal trainer was arrested after he allegedly left his infant alone in his car while he worked out with a client.
Solomon Allen, 25, was charged with child endangerment after a maintenance worker heard the cries of an 8-month-old baby girl Friday, KABC reported.
The car had been parked in a garage at the 24 Hour Fitness in North Hollywood. It had been left running with the doors unlocked for about an hour while Allen met with a client, according to the news station.
Police told KABC the North Hollywood area has had 290 stolen vehicles already this year.
"It's extremely careless and it's very selfish to leave an infant that's 8 months old in a car with the motor running, unlocked in a parking structure at a public business," said Los Angeles Police Department Capt. Stephen Carmona, the station reported.
Emergency responders took the baby to a nearby hospital, where she was reunited with her mother.
Allen was released on $100,000 bail early Saturday, records show. He is due in court May 25.
The father lists himself as CEO of FitFiend Activewear, which refers to itself as a “performance driven and fashionable experience for everyone.”
