A man has been charged after going for a job interview at Bella Vista in Sydney yesterday and leaving his two-year-old son locked in the car. The 35-year-old man left his young son in the car for an hour without water at a public car park on Lexington Drive so he could go to the job interview nearby.
A short time later a witness contacted police when they observed the child in the vehicle. The child was then taken from the vehicle. When the man returned to the vehicle an hour later he was spoken to by officers attached to the Hills Local Area Command. He was arrested and taken to Castle Hill Police Station and charged with leaving a child in a locked vehicle causing emotional distress. The man has been granted bail to appear at Parramatta Local Court next month.
