ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A 24-year-old woman is facing child abuse charges after allegedly trying to give her baby away outside an Albuquerque pharmacy.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1jZESm6) Laura Lopez appeared in court Saturday and will be held on $15,000 bond.

Police say a substance abuse counselor heard Lopez trying to give away the infant in front of a pharmacy on Central Avenue.

Police say the baby was covered in a sticky substance, which was the result of a severe case of pink eye.

The infant has since been hospitalized.
