Toddler abandoned in stroller at Bronx intersection
Police are hoping to identify a toddler who was found abandoned at a Bronx intersection on Monday morning.
The boy was found around 5:30 a.m. in a blue stroller on the southeast corner of East 141st Street and Rider Avenue in Mott Haven, police said.
He was taken to Lincoln Hospital for observation and is now in the custody of the Administration for Children’s Services.
The boy is described as Hispanic, about 2 years old, 26 inches long and weighing 26 pounds, police said. He has brown eyes and brown hair trimmed into a Mohawk.
Officials said a truck delivery driver called police after seeing a woman pushing the toddler in the stroller and leaving.
The woman, believed to be the boy’s mother, is described as Hispanic with a light complexion and black hair. Police said she was dressed in all black and wore her hair in a bun.
