NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - A mall security guard was arrested on Long Island after police rescued his two-year-old son from a car in the mall's parking lot.
The boy, who was strapped into his car seat, had been left in the vehicle on the second level of the Roosevelt Field Mall on Sunday, according to Nassau County Police.
Police responded to a 911 call about the boy at about 11:26 a.m. When they arrived they found a window down and a door unlocked. The boy was sweating profusely and was hot to the touch, said police.
The father, Kaliym Rodriguez, 26, a security guard at Macy's, returned about 90 minutes later and was arrested on the spot.
The boy was transported by ambulance to an area hospital where he was treated and released into the care of Child Protective Services.
Rodriguez was expected to be arraigned on Monday.
