Conway police contacted the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline after responding to a call at 1155 Skyline Drive, Walmart, about a young child alone in a vehicle.


According to the incident report, police made contact with a small female child who was sitting inside a vehicle with the window rolled down halfway.


When police started to speak with the young girl, she told them her nine-year-old sister was lying down in the back seat.


The nine-year-old would not talk to police, according to the report.


The young girl told police her mom went inside the store to buy pants.


The person reporting told police she saw the girl in the vehicle unattended for 11 minutes before she contacted police.


Store cameras showed the woman entered the store at 4:56 p.m. and returned to the vehicle where she met police at 5:11 p.m.


The report states when officers explained the dangers of leaving children alone to the mother, she argued that an appropriate age to be left alone with another child was nine years old.
