    A father is accused of leaving his kid in the car so he could attend class at the University of Delaware.

    Police were called to the campus Tuesday afternoon just before 1 p.m. after passerbys said they saw a young child crying and banging on the window of a parked car with the windows cracked. The witnesses were able to get the 3-year-old to open the door then alerted police, according to Newark Police.

    While investigating, Rafig Gurbanzada, 32, showed up around 1:50 p.m. and said that he had left his child in the car around 12:15 p.m. so that he could attend class.

    The child was evaluated at the scene, found to be unharmed and released to the child’s mother.

    Gurbanzada was arrested and charged with second-degree reckless endangerment and child endangerment. He was released on $2,000 unsecured bond.

    It wasn't known which class Gurbanzada was attending. He is listed as a Master of Public Administration major on the university's website.
