A father sits in jail after being accused of leaving his 3 month old daughter at a bakery in Weslaco.
Police did not release the man's name but did say he went inside a bakery on Texas street in the afternoon and placed the child down and disappeared. Witnesses told police they noticed the baby alone and called authorities after she was left unattended for more than 10 minutes. When officers arrived the father returned and he was then arrested by the police. Child Protective Services took the baby into custody and she will stay in foster care while the investigation continues.
