DENVER -- There was a scare in the parking lot of a Home Depot store Thursday afternoon.
A child was found alone in a hot car.
Police say the child's babysitter was inside the store. They accuse her of shoplifting.
Investigators say the child was left unattended in a silver Subaru in the parking lot of Home Depot in Stapleton for about 10 minutes.
Employees told FOX31 Denver the child needed medical attention. Police said he was going to be fine and he was later reunited with his mother.
Several police squad cars responded to the store because of the report of the unattended child and woman shoplifting.
A couple of hours after the initial call a FOX31 Denver camera captured a woman approaching the silver Subaru. Reporter Justin Joseph says she saw the camera and then kept walking.
She went to an ambulance which was sitting at the side of the building and talked to someone inside. She then walked away.
Police say they gave that woman a ticket which orders her to appear Friday for more questioning.
Our crew tried to talk to the woman, but she ran away saying, "Leave me alone. Leave me alone."
The child and his mother were together Thursday afternoon. Home Depot did not return our calls requesting comment.AlertMe
