NEW YORK (CNN) - Police have arrested a 20-year-old woman they say left a baby abandoned in a stroller on a subway platform on Monday.

A witness told police she saw a woman, described as between 20 and 30 years old, push a stroller from a subway car onto the platform when the doors opened.

Early Tuesday morning, police announced they have arrested a woman in the case, but didn't release her name or relationship to the baby.

The witness said the woman didn't get off the train, instead letting the doors slide closed and continuing on the subway.

After waiting 20 minutes with the baby on the platform to see if the caretaker or mother would return for the child, the witness alerted police.

The 7-month-old girl is in stable condition at nearby St. Luke's Hospital.

Police said she was not malnourished, though she suffers from a bit of eczema.
