A Danville woman who faces felony child endangerment in connection with leaving her two infant twins in a car at Stoneridge Shopping Center last week may have done the same thing previously.
"There is some indication this has happened before," said Pleasanton police Sgt. Kurt Schlehuber. "That part is still under investigation.
Schlehuber said Danville resident Amanda Nejat, 46, was taken into custody last week.
"She was at the mall for 45 minutes. We determined that through our investigation and surveillance video," he said. "We were called there by a citizen who walked by and saw the infants in the car, heard them crying."
Schlehuber said the woman, who was driving a Cadillac Escalade, was asked by mall security to stay until police arrived. Nejat had been shopping at Nordstrom while the 11-week-old babies were in the car unattended at about 4 p.m. on Feb. 8, he said.
Nejat was charged with two felony counts of child endangerment -- one for each of the twins -- and has since been released on bond.
