Sadeekah Abdul Salaam, 32, has been charged with reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of a child, and abandonment of a child, according to law enforcement sources.
The mother’s arrest comes after the NYPD released heartbreaking surveillance video of the toddler — who’s believed to be a 4-year-old girl named Sidaya — being led by a woman through the Bronx.
Cops found the youngster standing alone on the corner of Prospect Avenue and East 156th Street in Longwood just after midnight Saturday, police said.
The child was taken to Lincoln Medical Center where she was evaluated and found to be in good health, police said. She’s under the care of child services.
