Chicas has been charged with risk of injury to a minor.

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man is in custody after police say he left his 2-year-old daughter alone in his idling car and she put the vehicle into drive, smashing it into parked cars.

West Hartford Police arrested 33-year-old Oscar Chicas on Saturday and charged him with risk of injury to a minor. He is being held on $15,000 bond.

It was not known Monday if Chicas is represented by a lawyer.

Authorities say Chicas’ daughter was left in a running car and managed to put the car into drive. The car struck two other vehicles, causing minor damage.

The girl was not injured. Police say the state Department of Children and Families was notified and the girl was left with her uncle.
