Around 5 p.m. Saturday, deputies received reports of a child left unattended in a vehicle in a parking lot on the 25600 block of The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch, according to Deputy Natalie Arriaga, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.  Outdoor temperatures were around 90 degrees when the 5-year-old boy was left in the unattended vehicle. 'A concerned citizen was able to remove the boy from the vehicle and waited for law enforcement personnel to arrive,' Arriaga said.  When law enforcement arrived on-scene, an announcement was made by deputies in a nearby department store for the owner of the vehicle to identify themselves, according to officials.
