PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a Phoenix man is in custody after his infant daughter was found alone in a motel room.

Phoenix police say 24-year-old Timothy J. Bell was booked into jail Monday on suspicion of child neglect and a weapon violation.

His bond was set at $3,600 at his initial court appearance Tuesday. Bell doesn’t have an attorney yet.

Bell allegedly called family members to say he was leaving his 5-month-old daughter in the motel room because he couldn’t find a baby sitter.

A friend of the family then called police.

Officers had motel management open the room about 5 p.m. Monday and they found the infant clothed only in a diaper and on the floor.

Bell later returned to the room and was arrested.
