Records from the National Weather Service indicate the outside temperature in North Las Vegas was 101 degrees at that time.

The officers found the 6-year-old, who was checked on scene and then transferred to the custody of Child Protective Services, Cuevas said.

The child's father, identified as Jesse Ramires, 43, was arrested and booked into the North Las Vegas Community Correctional Center on suspicion of child abuse and leaving a child in a vehicle, according to Cuevas.

NLVPD says people should not leave their children unattended in cars.

If you do find a child alone in a vehicle, you're asked to call 911.
