Mom left 2-week-old baby in freezing cold car to shop at Connecticut adult store: cops Lindsay M. Hoffmann, 26, and her friend, 54-year-old Marquette Riggsbee, were busted Wednesday after the child spent 20 minutes in freezing temperatures in a car that was not running, police said. Both people have previous prostitution-related arrests. BY Sasha Goldstein NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, February 5, 2015, 2:07 PM Lindsay M. Hoffmann, 26, left her baby in the cold car to shop at a Connecticut adult store, cops said. She was convicted of prostitution in 2013. Previous Next Enlarge Police Handout A young mom left her 2-week-old baby inside a freezing car while she shopped at a Connecticut adult store called Very Intimate Pleasures, police said. It was only after a manager at the Southington VIP store called police Wednesday morning that 26-year-old Lindsay M. Hoffmann and her acquaintance, 54-year-old Marquette Riggsbee, were busted for leaving the tiny boy inside a freezing cold car in the parking lot, authorities told WFSB-TV. “The infant's core temperature was found to be adequate, but it did have cold extremities,” police said in a statement on Wednesday. "He was not dressed for winter. He was just in a normal onesie, no hat, hands exposed," VIP District Manager Tina Marchese told WFSB. "It really affected us because we are all mothers so it was a really sad thing for the baby." The car wasn’t running when authorities responded to the 11 a.m. call at the adult superstore, one of four in Connecticut. Hoffmann and Riggsbee reportedly entered the store, at 228 Queen St., holding the child, before staff told the minors were not allowed inside. The couple left and returned without the baby and staff looked outside to see the child sitting alone in the car with no one else in 29-degree weather. WFSB The child was not allowed inside VIP, the adult store, so the mom allegedly left the baby inside the car in the parking lot. The tiny baby spent some 20 minutes outside alone in the freezing cold, cops said. Heartless. That's cruel, how could anyone do that," Janelle Lizotte told WFSB. "I can't even imagine. I wouldn't even think of doing that." The child has been taken into custody by the Department of Children and Families, which is conducting an investigation. Hoffmann and Riggsbee have each been charged with risk of injury to a minor and leaving a child unsupervised and held on $25,000 bond. Hoffmann, of Waterbury, is scheduled to appear in court Thursday. WFSB The store sells sexy clothing for adults, according to its website. The young mom has 2013 convictions for prostitution and failure to appear in court. She was found guilty in December of driving with a suspended driver’s license, online court records show. Riggsbee faces pending charges for trafficking in persons, coercion, promoting prostitution and unlawful restraint. He was convicted of resisting arrest in 2013. Dozens of people across the country were arrested in unrelated cases during the summer for leaving their unattended children in extremely hot vehicles. In some cases, those kids died from the high temperatures.
