Man Left Two Children Under 3 Alone in Car While Shopping: Orange Police

A Shelton man is facing charges after leaving his two children under 3 years old alone in a car in Orange earlier this month.

Police responded to the K&G Fashion Superstore at 80 Boston Post Road on May 16 after receiving a report of two young children unattended in a vehicle at about 2:50 p.m., police said.

Hasan Mehmeti, 37, of Shelton, was arrested and charged with two counts of risk of injury to a minor and two counts of leaving a child under 12 unattended.

He admitted to police that he left his two kids alone in the car briefly while he was in the store, so police took him into custody and arrested him. 

He was released after posting a $5,000 bond and last appeared in court on May 18.
