Westport police have arrested a Fairfield woman accused of leaving her young son in the car while she went tanning on Saturday.

Kristen Becker, 37, had been in a tanning room at Palm Beach Tanning for about five minutes when her 3-or-4-year-old son went into the salon alone, according to the Fairfield Daily Voice.

The temperature was in the 20s on Saturday and the little boy was not wearing a jacket, Westport News reports, citing the police report.

Employees told Becker that her son was in the salon and her response was that he was supposed to stay in the car, according to the Hour. 

Becker was charged with risk of injury to a child, posted bond and is due in Norwalk Superior Court on Feb. 11.
