“The 31-year-old is accused of leaving her daughter in a Riverside grocery store on Sunday night, police said.
Vilaysane was seen at the store with her daughter when the little girl strayed away from her mother, cops said.
When someone found the girl, she was brought back to Vilaysane — who in turn reportedly said, “Oh, just leave her.”
She later checked out of the store, leaving the 2-year-old behind, officials said.
“I haven’t seen anything like this before,” Paul Miranda, a Riverside detective, told the Los Angeles Times. “I think that’s what struck a nerve.””
