NEW YORK (1010 WINS)  -- A mother was arrested late Friday afternoon after she allegedly left her three-year-old son alone in a car outside a Target in College Point, Queens, the NYPD said. 

Her son was found strapped into a car seat. Police reportedly responded to a 911 call made by a shopper who saw the child.

A police office broke the vehicle's window to get the child out. 

The mother came out a short time later and was arrested. 

The boy was taken to New York-Presbyterian Queens to be evaluated.
