Associated Press Release

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida man is facing child neglect charges after allegedly leaving an infant in a locked car outside a Fort Myers strip club.

Police arrested 21-year-old Andrew Sosa after they found the infant in the back seat of a Kia Optima in the parking lot of the Lookers strip club. A bystander had flagged down an officer, who smashed a window to get the child out.

NBC2 in Fort Myers reports that the four-month old girl was sweating and covered in vomit. She was taken to a local children's hospital and treated for mild dehydration and is expected to recover.

Police say the infant was left alone for more than three hours while Sosa was inside the strip club. A judge set the suspect's bond on Saturday at $100,000.
