RIVERSIDE – A woman accused of abandoning her 2-year-old girl in a Riverside grocery store was identified by police today, but she remained at large.
Riverside police identified the woman as 31-year-old Chiengkham Vilaysane.
The toddler was left in the Food-4-Less store at 4250 Van Buren Blvd. around 5:55 p.m. Sunday after the woman paid for her groceries, according to the Riverside Police Department.
The woman entered the store with the child by her side and while inside, the toddler wandered off, police said, adding that the woman never sought out the child’s whereabouts and continued shopping.
While the woman was sh
opping, a good Samaritan brought the child to her and the mother allegedly responded, “Oh, just leave her,” before deserting the toddler after paying for her groceries, police said.
“It appears the toddler was intentionally left in the store by the mother,” according to Riverside police.
“The small child was able to identify the woman as her `mommy’ when she was shown a photo from the surveillance footage. The child has not been reported as missing and has since been placed in the custody of Child
Protective Services.”
Vilaysane was wearing a dark tank top shirt and denim shorts and is believed to have tattoos on her right arm, police said.
Anyone with information was urged to contact Riverside police Detective Paul Miranda at (951) 353-7945 or email pmiranda@riversideca.gov.
