A mother who allegedly left her daughter in the car while visiting a game room was arrested during an illegal gambling raid at the northwest Harris County business.

Detectives say they were executing a warrant for illegal gambling at a game room in the 11500 block of Veterans Memorial when they found the 7-year-old girl alone inside a car. Xiomara Isaula was arrested on a charge of child abandonment with intent to return.

Investigators also arrested the game room's operator, 23-year-old Hugo Hurtado, on charges of possession of a gambling device, equipment or paraphernalia. His bond was set at $1,000 for the class A misdemeanor.

Isaula's bond was set at $5,000.
