SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was charged with misdemeanor child abuse after he was accused of leaving his toddler in an unheated vehicle while he went into a vape shop.

A passer-by spotted the child inside the vehicle, which was not running, and called the police.

Salisbury police charged Corey Eugene Angle Jr., 27, of the 400 block of Ludwick Avenue, on Saturday. He has since been released under a $3,000 secured bond.

The 3-year-old child was left inside the vehicle for about 15 to 17 minutes, according to the person who spotted the toddler. The caller watched the vehicle until police arrived. When officers got to the scene, the child was still inside the vehicle and Angle was inside the store.

Police officials said the temperature was in the low 20s at the time of the incident, which was 6:30 p.m.
