A 7-month-old baby was inside of an SUV when it was stolen from the 2300 block of West Church Street just before 2 p.m. this afternoon, according to Orlando police.
The SUV, a 2006 blue, four-door Nissan Pathfinder, and the child were found about 15 minutes later in the 600 block of W. Tampa Avenue, but the suspect had fled the scene, police spokeswoman Sgt. Barbara Jones. The baby was not injured.
The baby had been left unattended in the SUV when it was stolen. Police are looking for the suspect.
This would be a pretty damned horrific thing to have happen but it begs the question, what kind of a stupid fucking idiot would leave their car idling with the baby inside? Was it in their own driveway perhaps? I’ve probably done that. Or was it in front of a business somewhere?
Judging from the Satellite view over at Google Maps it looks like a residential area so I suppose it could have been stolen out of someone’s driveway. How many times have you forgotten something and run back into the house to grab it while your car was running? With the kids in it? Shit, that’s scary…
