Girl, 7, left in car outside Orlando strip club

A 38-year-old man faces a child neglect charge after deputies said he left a 7-year-old girl alone inside his car outside an Orlando area strip club.

After receiving a 911 call, Orange County deputies found the girl locked inside the car about 1 a.m. Wednesday at the Diamond Club. According to deputies, the girl had been sleeping.

WFTV-TV reports deputies determined the car belonged to Elliut Gonzalez and asked club employees to help track him down.

Gonzalez was drinking inside the club, and employees told deputies he’d been there about 50 minutes, sheriff’s Lt. Paul Hopkins said.

Employees paged Gonzalez to get him to come outside, where he was arrested.

Gonzalez remained in jail Wednesday morning.
