THE BRONX - Police say the suspect in Tuesday's carjacking first tried to drop off the stolen vehicle and the infant inside at a Bronx garage.

Authorities say the suspect tried to leave the silver Jeep and 7-month-old Ayanna Julbe at a garage on Inwood Avenue. A witness says a man walked up to the vehicle, yelling at the suspect to get out. Ayanna was eventually found in the back seat of the car on Goble Place by Jerome Avenue. Police say the suspect called them from a payphone, alerting them to the infant's whereabouts.

Surveillance video of the suspect taken from the garage was released by police today.

EMS workers took Ayanna to Montefiore Medical Center, where she was later discharged with no injuries.
