Detectives questioning person of interest about baby found in Northwest Side alley
The baby, less than a week old, was discovered in a dresser drawer in the 2300 block of North Oak Park Avenue in Montclare.
A person of interest was being questioned Friday about a newborn found abandoned in a dresser drawer in a Northwest Side alley earlier this week.
The baby boy, less than a week old, was discovered about 8:15 a.m. in the 2300 block of North Oak Park Avenue in Montclare, according to Chicago police.
Police would only say they were questioning someone.
The boy had no visible injuries when he was found, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford. He was taken in good condition to Lurie Children’s Hospital.
In Illinois, parents who can’t care for a newborn may anonymously surrender a baby up to 30 days old at hospitals, emergency medical care facilities, police and fire stations.
