Mother leaves kids in car during job interview, arrested


A mother is facing child abuse charges after police said she left her children, ages 2 and 6 months, in the car while she went to a job interview.

According to Scottsdale PD, a witness heard a child crying inside a Durango parked in an office complex around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, March 27.

Police said the witness reported the two children were inside the vehicle parked directly in the sun, with the engine off, the doors closed and each of the four windows were just slightly open.

The mother, Shanesha Taylor, 35, returned to the vehicle about 45 minutes later and told the officer she had just finished a job interview and did not have anyone to watch her children.

She was arrested and booked into jail for child abuse.

Her children are now in CPS custody.
