A mother faces child endangerment charges after police say she left her special needs child in a car.

Police were called to the Acme in the Smyrna Mart Shopping Center Wednesday after several witnesses say they saw the child in the car without an adult.

Police say the autistic, five-year-old child was left in the car for at least 20 minutes.

Her mother, Inga Gillett-Spio, was arrested, but is free on $1,000 bail. Delaware Family Services was contacted.
