Investigators say 21-year-old Paul Fernando Bojorquez of Moreno Valley was booked on Saturday and was being held on $50,000 bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.

Sheriff's investigators say the child was inside the vehicle at a convenience store. The keys had been left in the vehicle, which was reported stolen.
