Teenager Arrested After Stealing Car with Baby Inside
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A 17-year-old faces kidnapping and carjacking charges after authorities say he stole a car with a baby inside.
Daytona Beach police said their detectives spotted two stolen vehicles driving together on Friday. One had recently been stolen from a car dealership. The car stopped at a gas station where three men jumped out and took off.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the suspect ran through Bethune-Cookman University's campus and came upon a woman sitting in a car with her 1-month-old.
Police Chief Mike Chitwood said the suspect forced the woman to get out and wouldn't let her take her baby with her. Officers chased the suspect until he crashed into a parked dump truck.
The baby was not injured.
Authorities are still searching for the other two suspects.
