Solomon Allen: Father left infant in unlocked, running car for 90 minutes at gym

Solomon Allen accused of leaving infant in car while he worked out at gym for 90 mins.

A 25-year-old man was arrested and charged with child endangerment on Friday, after he left his 8-month-old daughter in an unlocked car, engine running, in the parking garage of a North Hollywood 24 Hour Fitness gym for 90 minutes, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The man, Solomon Allen, is a personal trainer, left his baby girl unattended in the car while he worked with a client inside the gym, according to KABC.

A maintenance worker in the garage found the baby on Friday morning, and called LAPD to report the abandoned child just before 9 a.m. The man heard the baby’s cries in the garage, and was astonished to discover the child alone in a running car.

Paramedics were able to quickly rescue the baby from inside the vehicle, and the baby was transported to a nearby hospital for a checkup. The baby was fine, and was released to her mother later the same day.

“It’s extremely careless and it’s very selfish to leave an infant that’s 8 months old in a car with the motor running, unlocked in a parking structure at a public business,” LAPD Captain Stephen Carmona said to KABC.

As for Allen, he is being held on $100,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on May 25th at the Van Nuys Superior Court.

    This motherfucker is an asshole for doing that to his infant. He IS NOT an appropriate candidate for “Father of the Year”. I guess his priorities are ALL THE WAY FUCKED UP! How could somebody do that to their infant? Leave their baby unattended in a running and unlocked car, isn’t that dangerous. Just anybody would have had the opportunity to get into his car to commit not only grand theft auto, but also kidnapping. Solomon Allen needs to reconsider his priorities, because right now it’s all the way fucked up.

      Vanity. He is far more interested in getting “buff” than being a responsible father.

      Wrong or right I like to know the facts before I make a decision about a man’s character. To say he was more concerned with working out than he was with his daughter may not be the case. Did he make a bad decision? Yes, but he’s intent may have been one that was in the benefit of his daughter as well. He was a trainer at the gym and he left her in the car to work and earn money not just to work out, at least that’s how it sounds to me. People always try to take the high road when they judge others actions. I try to understand the full scenario. could he have made a better choice, yes he could have but what were his reasons, and you may say no reason is good enough, but can you really say that. Have and are you in that man’s shoes. I’m sure if we dig deep enough we can find something really fucked up in all our lives, so stop judging or start walking on water.
