A woman suspected of abandoning her 10-month-old daughter on a New York City subway platform was being held in Manhattan by police early Tuesday, after she was spotted by a citizen, after authorities distributed her image through the media.

According to cops, the 20-year-old woman, whose name wasn’t released, left the child at the Columbus Circle station in a stroller Monday afternoon, then re-boarded the subway via the No. 1 train.
