SCRANTON, Pa. — Authorities in Scranton, Pennsylvania, are looking for information on the identity of a child who was given to a stranger.
According to a post from the Scranton Police Department, a woman contacted them Tuesday and said she was walking outside a laundromat when an unknown female handed her the infant and walked away after stating the child “would be better off with her.”
The woman who turned over the child to police said she has no idea who the child or woman is. She said the woman was with an unknown man, as well.
