LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was arrested on Friday, after police say he left his two small children alone in a hot car.

According to an arrest report, it happened just before 3:30 p.m., near the intersection of Wilma Avenue and 5th Street in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.

Hillview Police say they received a report that there were two small children left alone in a vehicle in front of the Shepherdsville Pawn Shop. Police say that when 32-year-old Joseph Garland went inside the pawn shop to sell some items, he left the two girls -- a 1-year-old and a 4-year-old -- alone in a vehicle.

Police say the car was not running -- and the temperature was in the 80s -- but the windows were rolled down.

"Visually looking at the children, you could notice that both were covered in sweat and the 1-year-old in the child safety seat had wet hair to the touch," an officer wrote in the arrest report.

Police say they were already on the scene when Garland came out of the pawn shop. He was arrested and charged with two counts of second degree wanton endangerment and two counts of third degree criminal abuse of a child. He is currently being held in the Bullitt County Detention Center.

Child Protective Services was contacted, and the mother of the children arrived to pick them up.
