    A Long Island mom was arrested after police say she robbed a bank and then took off in a waiting taxi with her young daughter.

    Diana Marini allegedly left her six-year-old daughter in a taxi on Saturday afternoon while she walked into the Chase Bank on Veterans Memorial Highway in Islandia and handed a note to a teller demanding cash, police said.

    The teller gave her an unknown amount of money and she fled the bank into the cab, according to police. A Suffolk County police officer responding to the robbery found the cab a short time later and Marini was arrested.

    The 28-year-old was charged with robbery and endangering the welfare of a child. Police said she’ll be held overnight ahead of her arraignment Sunday. It wasn’t immediately known if she had an attorney.
