After what was nearly a two-month investigation, an arrest has been made in the case of the newborn infant that was found abandoned on Main St. in Danbury.

As reported back in May, the city’s Special Victims Unit began searching for answers regarding an infant that was found abandoned near the Polla Supermarket located at 399 Main Street in Danbury. Police say that they believe the male child was left behind the grocery store very shortly after being born.

At that time, the Danbury PD was extremely concerned for the well-being of the child’s mother, as she may have needed medical attention herself, and could’ve possibly be a victim of a crime.

After a few days, the DPD released the 911 calls from when the abandoned infant was first discovered and the photos of clothes in which the child was wrapped in hopes that the evidence may urge anyone who may have information to come forward. Very quickly, they were able to identify the mother of the newborn and the last we heard, she was being treated at a local hospital, but her identity was not released.

Now, according to a press release from the department, 22-year-old, Anny Castillo of Danbury, turned herself in on an active warrant today (July 13) at about 1:40 PM.

Castillo has been arrested and charged with abandonment of a child under the age of six and cruely to persons. She was released on a $1,500 bond and is expected to appear in Danbury Superior Court tomorrow morning.
