Vehicle stolen while small child was still inside

Posted: Updated:

A three-year-old had a wild ride late Friday night when a car-jacker swiped a car with the little girl still in the backseat.

It happened around 11:30 p.m. at a gas station on the 1400 block of Washington Boulevard in Beaumont.

Police say both adults stepped out of the car to get gas.   They were then approached by a man asking for money and a cigarette.

The carjacker then jumped into the car and sped away with the three year old still inside.

About 20 minutes later officers got a call from someone who lives on Willow Wood in Beaumont saying a small child was knocking at his front door.

Police say the child was not hurt.

No arrests have been made.
