NEW YORK, NY (WPIX) — Police are questioning two people believed to be the parents of a four-month-old baby abandoned bear a Harlem firehouse Sunday night.

The baby, that is just a few months old, was found by good Samaritan Micheal Allen in a park on West 143rd Street.

Allen told PIX11 he looked out the window of his apartment and saw a stroller sitting outside.

Temperatures were in the 30s Sunday night.

When Allen went outside to investigate, he discovered the baby looking up at him, not even crying.

“I was thinking how could anyone leave a beautiful, precious child out there that way,” the father of three said.

Allen alerted firefighters who then took the baby to Harlem Hospital.

Allen says he is going to visit “Baby Sunday,” the nickname he gave the child, Monday morning.

The child has since been released from the hospital and is currently in the care of ACS.
