Toronto police say the investigation is ongoing.

Toronto police say they don't believe they'll lay charges against the mother of a newborn baby boy who was allegedly abandoned Tuesday morning outside a commercial building.

Const. David Hopkinson says the mother is receiving medical care, but declined to provide further details.

Police say they received a call just before 11 a.m. from someone claiming to be a passerby who found the infant behind a plaza in the city's west end.

They initially said they received reports that the baby was found naked on the ground outside the building.

They say a passerby claimed to have put clothing on the boy and brought him to a safe indoor area before calling police.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
