A Los Angeles woman suspected of leaving four young children in a car in extreme temperatures was jailed Wednesday.

Danessha Janee Williams, 28, was booked into the High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto for suspicion of child cruelty. She’s being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Shortly before 12:30 p.m. deputies were called to the 15400 block of Vallejo Street for a report of children in a car. According to authorities the children β€” one 3-year-old girl, two 2-year-old girls and a 1-year-old boy β€” had been in the car unsupervised with the engine off and the windows rolled up for about 30 minutes.

β€œThe children were in the back seat and no car seats were located in the vehicle,” officials said in a written statement.

Williams tried to drive the car away but was quickly detained.

The children were medically evaluated by firefighters and released to the custody of a family member.

Anyone with information is asked to call sheriff’s officials at 760-241-2911.
