CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A Cape Coral man was arrested Friday night for leaving an infant locked inside a car while he visited a Fort Myers strip club.

A Fort Myers police officer was flagged down at 10:36 p.m. outside of Lookers, 4045 Fowler Street, and shown a baby locked inside a vehicle.

Police could see the baby in a car seat in the back of a Kia Optima but they could not find the adult responsible for the child.  Officers smashed out a car window to free the baby and found a four-month-old girl, sweating and covered in vomit.

The baby was taken to Golisano Children's Hospital for mild dehydration.

Police found the adult who left the child alone inside the vehicle for more than three hours.  21-year-old Andrew Sosa was arrested for child neglect.
