HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Police say a woman was arrested after two people said they saw her apparently try to abandon a baby several times in central Pennsylvania.

Sgt. Gabriel Olivera told PennLive.com (https://bit.ly/15DAhUI ) that the witnesses “saved a life” on Monday morning.

Police said the two reported seeing a woman put the 4-month-old girl wrapped in a sheet on the cold ground in a Harrisburg field and walk away.

They said the woman returned, but then put the baby into the back of a parked pickup truck, only to return again.

Olivera said the witnesses reported that the woman then tried to put the child into a Community Aid clothing collection bin, but they confronted and stopped her.

He said the 30-year-old woman will face charges of attempted homicide and child endangerment.
