Police in Fairfield County are asking the public for help identifying a young boy who was dropped off in a city street in the rain and abandoned. 

The boy, who goes by the name Prince, was abandoned at around 5:44 p.m. on Wednesday, March 31, in the area of Burroughs Street and East Main Street, said Bridgeport Police Capt. Kevin Gilleran.

"It appears the child was left there by a Black female operating a white Infinity Q50 or Q40 sedan," said Gilleran.

 Although the registration plate is blue and white in color, the state of registration has not been confirmed. A possible partial plate is “BV," he added.
