A Hanover woman accused of leaving a baby in a car while shopping at the Williamsburg Premium Outlets last year has turned herself in on outstanding police warrants.

Prasilla Saleem, 30, is the second person to be arrested for allegedly leaving a child in a car near the Sketchers store at the outlets in September 2016. Nagoor G. Sukoor-Abdul-Razak, 36, was arrested in Chesterfield Sept. 23, according to police.

Saleem turned herself in at the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail around 2:15 p.m. Oct. 11, according to James City County Police spokeswoman Stephanie Williams.

She is charged with felony abuse and neglect of children.

Police responded to the Premium Outlets on Richmond Road around 5 p.m. Sept. 10, 2016 after an off-duty Petersburg police officer saw a baby alone in a running car, police have said.

Police determined that the baby had been in the vehicle for at least 45 minutes, Williams told WYDaily Oct. 9.

Police obtained arrest warrants for felony child abuse four days later, on Sept. 14, 2016.

Sukoor-Abdul-Razak was arrested Sept. 23, by Chesterfield Police, Williams said. He was transported to the Chesterfield Jail.
