LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Jeffersontown woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly tried to abandon her 6-year-old child at Sam's Club, telling employees that she didn't want her anymore.

According to a police report, it happened Tuesday, just before 7 p.m. Jeffersontown Police say 39-year-old Fengshan Huang tried to leave the Sam's Club on Alliant Avenue, near the interchange between I-64 and Hurstbourne Pkwy., without her 6-year-old little girl.

Police say store security detained Huang after the child had been found sitting in a store aisle alone. When they tried to reunite mother and child, Huang allegedly told store employees, "Take her. Call 911," then walked out of the store, "with the child running after her."

The police report says the child ran across the roadway and into a parking lot "with heavy vehicular traffic."

The 6-year-old was eventually taken to the manager's office, according to police, and the employees made several attempts to give her back to her mother, but Huang allegedly said, "I don't want her anymore!"

Huang was charged with first degree wanton endangerment, a felony. The child was taken to the Home of the Innocents, according to police.
