DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - A woman who is accused of abandoning a newborn boy behind a grocery store has been arrested.

Police say 22-year-old Anny Castillo, of Danbury, turned herself in to authorities Thursday after a warrant was issued for her arrest.

Castillo is charged with abandonment of a child under age 6, risk of injury and cruelty to a person. She was released on $1,500 bond and is to appear in Danbury Superior Court on Thursday.

Police were called to the Zaytuna Grocery Store on May 21 after a man reported finding a baby.

The boy was wrapped in women’s clothing and was only a few hours old. He was taken to a hospital and was later reported to be in good condition.

It was not immediately clear if Castillo has a lawyer.
