Police say the parents of a 9-month-old boy left the baby infant inside a car while they shopped at a sex store.

Our sister station WGN-TV reported it happened Saturday, June 22, 2013 at Lovers Lane in Libertyville, Illinois.

Police said the baby was crying and sweating profusely when it was found.  The baby had been left inside the car for an estimated 20 minutes.  Outdoor temperatures were reportedly in the upper 70s.

WGN-TV reported 18-year-old Michael Cegars and 20-year-old Jessica Hurley-Smith told officers they left the baby in the car because no one under the age of 18 was allowed inside the store.

The couple, who are from Wisconsin, were reportedly charged with child endangerment.
