    A Woodbridge mom is accused of leaving her 7-year-old child unattended in a car parked outside the Target Store on Universal Drive in North Haven.

    A Woodbridge mom is facing charges after police say she left her 7-year-old child in her car outside a Target store in North Haven.

    It's the second time in three days a child was left in the car outside this store, according to police.

    An East Haven woman was charged on Monday after police say she left two young children in her car.

    Police said a "concerned citizen" called 911 after spotting the child Thursday morning in the parking lot on Universal Drive.

    Officers on scene concluded that the child had been alone in the car for about 20 minutes. Police said the car's windows were down and the temperature outside was 78 degrees.

    The child's mother, Elizabeth Ball, was charged with leaving a child under the age of 12 unattended in a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor.

    Ball is due in court July 17.
