Police arrest an Indianapolis woman suspected of abandoning her newborn in a trash can.

More than half of the 159 victims were between 13 and 15 years old.

Indianapolis police have arrested a woman they suspect abandoned her newborn baby in a trash can Friday night.

22-year-old Briana Holland was arrested Saturday morning on a preliminary charge of neglect of a dependent.

She is in custody awaiting a formal charge from the prosecutor.

Police say Holland gave birth to the child inside the bathroom of an Indianapolis business and then left the child in the trash can.

The Department of Child Services says the infant is in good condition.
