HANOVER, Md. (AP) - Anne Arundel County police have arrested a woman they say left her 4-year-old child alone in a car in a garage at Maryland Live! Casino.

Police say casino security officers saw the child alone and crying in the vehicle about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police were called, and officers say the vehicle had arrived about 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Authorities say the child was taken to a local hospital. Police say the child was hungry and cold, but showed no signs of physical abuse.

Officers say a woman arrived at the car and said she was the child's mother.

Twenty-four-year-old Alicia Denice Brown of Baltimore was charged with second-degree child abuse, confined unattended child under 8 years old, and neglect of a minor.

The child was released to a relative.
