Maria Hawke said Monday.
The newborn about 4 to 6 days old was left outside the manager’s apartment, Hawke said.
The manager reported that someone rang the doorbell, and when the manager opened the door, the “duffel bag was found with the baby inside of it,” Hawke said.
Tucson Fire Department paramedics took the baby to a hospital for evaluation, and the baby appeared to be in good health, Hawke said.
The infant is now in the custody of Child Protective Services.
Police do not know the identity of the mother but “would like to conduct a check of her welfare to ensure that she is not in need of medical attention or other services,” Hawke said.
Anyone with information about the mother’s identity or whereabouts is asked to call 911 or 88 CRIME, Hawke said.
Police would like to remind the public that newborns can be anonymously handed to health care workers at all Tucson area hospitals, Tucson Fire Department stations and Casa de los Nios.
The Arizona Safe Baby Haven Law allows for newborns 72 hours old or younger to be dropped off legally and anonymously at the specific facilities, Hawke said.
