An Arizona mother of four has been taken into custody and is facing child abuse charges after she left her baby unattended at a Chandler Target parking lot for more than 18 minutes and went to do shopping.

Court documents revealed that the incident unfolded Tuesday at around 4 p.m. Police received an emergency call from a man reporting a baby who was left alone in a vehicle adding that he was sweating and crying unstoppably.
