NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a New York City woman has been arrested after a newborn baby was found in a trash bag at a home on Staten Island.

The New York Police Department says Nausheen Rahman was arrested Saturday on a charge of concealment of a human corpse.

Police believe she is the baby’s mother, but are awaiting DNA confirmation.

Officers found the baby unconscious and unresponsive when they responded to a 911 call around 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the home in the New Springville neighborhood. Emergency crews pronounced the child dead at the scene.

The city’s medical examiner will try to determine the baby’s cause of death. Police said they are continuing to investigate.
