LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. (AP) - Police in the Portland suburb of Lake Oswego say a 35-year-old man accused of leaving his two young children alone in a car while he shopped at a grocery store has been cited.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/MgQtPG ) that Lake Oswego police Sgt. Tom Hamman says at least one person saw the little boys sleeping in a car in the store’s parking lot on Saturday afternoon and called 911. The outdoor temperature was about 75 degrees and the car’s sunroof had been left open. Hamman says the father returned soon after a fire department crew arrived and he unlocked the doors. Police says the children, ages 4 and 7, appeared to be fine.

Hamman says the father told police he was in the store about 10 minutes and left the boys because he didn’t want to wake them.

The man was cited for leaving a child unattended in a vehicle, a city code violation.
