cranston couple arrested for leaving child in car in Cranston

Cranston police have arrested a man and woman after they say the couple left their 14-month-old child inside a car at the time when they were shopping.

According to Major Todd Patalano, officers were called to the Burlington Coat Factory on Garflied Ave. right after 6:30 p.m. Saturday after someone heard screaming coming from a car in the parking lot. That person observed a child inside the unlocked vehicle but did not see any adult supervision.

During the investigation, police arrested Marvin Bastien, 35, and Tatiana Lowrie, 21, both of Providence, saying they left the toddler in the car without heat for over 30 minutes.

They were both charged with cruelty to or neglect of a child. DCYF had been notified and has temporary custody of the child.

Major Patalano said “Without an alert witness, this could have been a very different situation given the risks these parents took.”
