LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police in a Los Angeles suburb say they arrested a mother who abandoned her newborn baby in a toilet at a fast food restaurant.

West Covina police spokesman Rudy Lopez tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune (http://bit.ly/1U46sTj ) that the crying infant was found Monday morning after a bleeding woman left a Subway bathroom.

The baby was taken to a hospital neonatal intensive care unit. The child’s condition was not immediately available.

Police say the 38-year-old mother also was hospitalized and was expected to be booked on charges of attempted murder and child abandonment.

Police spokesman Rudy Lopez says the woman was found behind an auto parts store and is a known transient in the area.
