Indianapolis police arrested a woman suspected of abandoning her newborn baby in a trash can Friday night.

22-year-old Briana Holland was picked up Saturday morning on a preliminary charge of neglect of dependent.

She’s in custody awaiting a formal charge from the prosecutor.

Police say Holland gave birth to the child inside a bathroom of an Indianapolis business, and left the child in the trash can.

The department of child services says the infant is in good condition.
