A woman is accused of leaving her 5-year-old nephew alone for more than an hour at Dearborn's Fairlane Mall.

Dearborn police said the little boy was sick, vomiting and alone in the shopping center for more than an hour on Friday.

The child was found and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. 

The mall made an announcement that a child was found but it allegedly took the woman 20 minutes to respond.

Police were called and the aunt was ticketed.  She will be in court on neglect charges later this month.

The boy’s exact condition is unknown.
