MPD: Man stole car with child inside, returned car

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police are looking for a man they say stole a woman's car with her baby inside.

The victim, a 22-year-old woman, tells police she left her car running in front of her house with her nine month old son inside on Thursday afternoon about 4 o'clock. She says she ran inside to get some food and water before leaving again, but when she went back outside, her car was gone.

Police say a few minutes later the man who stole the car returned it to the area, jumped out and ran away. The child was not injured.

Authorities say a police dog was unable to find the suspect.

The suspect is described as a black man between 18 and 22 years of age. He is between 5'9" to 5'10", weighing about 150 pounds with facial stubble. He was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and dark blue jeans.

If you have any information, call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 266-6014 or text the keyword DANE along with a message of up to 160 characters, to CRIMES (274637).
