A woman believed to be the mother who was caught on surveillance abandoning her toddler daughter at a Riverside Food 4 Less is now in custody.
Chiengkham Vilaysane was taken into police custody several hours after her photo and name were released to the public and shared all over social media.
In the surveillance video, it shows a woman entering the store with the child on Sunday evening. Once in the store, the child wandered off, where a customer brought the child back to her Mom, but the Mom allegedly told the customer, “oh just leave her”.
The Mom then left the store without the child.
The child is in the care of CPS at this time. No word yet on whether Vilaysane has been arrested and charged.
We’ll continue to monitor this breaking story.
