An unidentified man has been charged with Child Abandonment after allegedly leaving a one year old child locked in a vehicle.

Around 4:00 pm Saturday, London Police were called to the White Oaks Mall parking lot after someone saw a 14 month old child locked in a vehicle with the windows rolled up.

Officers broke a window to retrieve the child who was transported to London Health Sciences Centre and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police would like to remind the public to never leave a child unattended and to refrain from leaving children and pets in vehicles.

Anyone who sees someone in distress is asked to call police.
