Father arrested after baby abandoned in Suisun City parking lot

26 July 2017

Erick Keeton, the barber who took the baby inside his shop and called the police, said: "I walked over (there) and saw the baby sitting in the auto seat".

"We're just shocked because it's a newborn baby".

Wendell Cooper, owner of J's Barber Shop and Hair Salon in the Sunset Shopping Center, said a customer walked into his business and said, "There's a baby in the parking lot".

Surveillance video from that smoke shop shows a man pulling up to a parking spot just after 3 p.m. on Monday. He started to pick up the auto seat, but quickly set it down and drove off, Cooper said. "Any auto could have hit the kid; it was super-hot outside, no clothes on the kid, wrapped in a blanket". There were no clothes on the kid. They called police after realizing a baby was in it.

The baby had been transported to a local hospital and appeared to be in good health.

In surveillance footage Daniel Mitchell is seen driving up to a parking spot at 141 Sunset Ave. and opening the door to the back seat of his vehicle.

Pope shuts off fountains amid drought
Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi said in an interview with Il Messaggero on Monday that she would intervene to stop the rationing. The Vatican says it is shutting off all its fountains, including those in St Peter's Square, because of Italy's drought.

"It's a real unsafe spot where that baby was sitting", Cooper said.

Mitchell was later arrested on probable cause for child endangerment, child abandonment, committing a felony while on bail and misdemeanor possession of suspected cocaine.

Mitchell had also been arrested in late June on multiple felony changes after a burglary in Suisun City, according to police.

Witnesses to the event say they have been left shaken.

"It's heart breaking. It's very, very disturbing", Grewal said. He shouldn't get away with what he's done. The infant was flown to an Oakland hospital after the mall officials noticed abnormalities in the baby's eyes.

"I got kids and all the barbers got kids", he said. He has been placed in the protective custody of Solano County Child Protective Services.
