NORTHGLENN, Colo. — Police were looking for a woman who tried to leave a baby on someone’s front porch Wednesday.

A woman called police at about 9:30 a.m. to say she heard a noise at her front door and when she looked, she saw a woman she didn’t know walking away from her house. This was in the 9800 block of Bruce Lane.

She also found an infant, about 4-months-old, in a car seat carrier on her front porch.

The caller told police the baby had what looked like an oxygen tube running from its nose to a portable oxygen bottle.

According to police, the woman yelled at the female who then walked back to the door and took the baby.
