Man tries to steal car, ditches it when sees baby inside
Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Baton Rouge Police are looking for someone who tried to steal a car, but ditched it when he found a baby inside.
It happened earlier this afternoon at 35th Street and Maple.
Police say a mother left the car running outside her house with her 10 month old inside because she forgot something.
We're told a man on a bicycle noticed the car unlocked and running so he took off with it. However, when he saw the baby, he left the car and fled.
The baby is ok; the mother won't be charged.
Police are looking for an older black man. If you say anything, call CrimeStoppers at 344-STOP (7867).
