For the second time in three days, and incredibly, in the same spot, young children were left alone inside a hot car in San Leandro.

Police found a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old child inside a car at the Marina Square Shopping Center on Friday. The windows were rolled up tight. The father was found in a nearby store and was arrested for child endangerment.

"You shouldn't leave people in a vehicle without air conditioning, or a pet, or anything for that nature. We're getting close to the summer months, and this is when it could really be a factor," said San Leandro Police Lt. Randall Brandt.

On Wednesday a woman was arrested for leaving her 4-month-old baby unattended in her car in the same parking lot.
