Southampton Town Police have arrested a 20-year-old Bridgehampton woman for leaving her four-month-old infant in the parking lot of Schmidt’s Fish Market on Friday, November 6. According to police, Gilda Rojas left her baby in a car seat by the side of the building. Rojas then allegedly left the scene as she was reportedly verbally fighting with an unidentified male. Police say the baby was alone for an extended amount of time in cold weather. Neighbors found the infant in the parking lot because it was crying. Rojas is said to have returned to Schmidts, 1282 North Sea Road, Southampton, before police arrived but both she and her baby were taken to policeheadquarters in Hampton Bays. Rojas was charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. Child protective services were also made aware of the incident.
