A mother who left two young children alone in a 2016 Nissan Rogue while she went grocery shopping with a third child was arrested and charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child Wednesday evening in Greenvale, Nassau police said.

Emily Bonilla Ramirez, 31, of Roslyn, was issued a desk appearance ticket after her arrest, which occurred at approximately 7:05 p.m. at the Wheatley Plaza shopping center on Northern Boulevard, police said. It was not immediately clear if she was represented by counsel.

The age of the child that the mother took to the Stop & Shop grocery store was not released. The two in the car are six and four, police said.
