HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A man and woman are facing child endangerment charges after leaving an infant alone in a parking lot in the Katy area, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

Investigators said the man brought the child to a woman, who happened to be in the area, and asked her for help and she called police.

Child Protective Services was also notified.

Shibley’s bail is set at $2,000.

Collins is being held on a $15,000 bail.
