A witness observed a female park at 515 W. 300 S., get out and walk toward the shelter. Approximately 30 minutes later the witness noticed the car was still there and looked inside. He saw 21-month-old female sitting in the back seat, windows on the vehicle up, and doors locked. The witness made contact with a UTA police officer who forced entry into the vehicle to retrieve the baby. SLCPD officers responded and attempted to locate the owner of the vehicle. Officers were positioned in an unmarked car to wait for the driver to return. After approximately two hours, the driver returned and was arrested. Akilah Davis, 36, was booked for felony child abandonment and possession of drug paraphernalia. The child was taken into DCFS custody.
