THE BRONX - Police have released surveillance video of a man who they say stole a car in Fordham with a 7-month-old girl in the backseat.
According to authorities, two parents went to a cell phone store on East Kingsbridge Road and Morris Avenue at around 6:30 p.m. last night, leaving their daughter and keys in the car.
Video shows the suspected thief in a black and white striped shirt getting into the silver Jeep Grand Cherokee and speeding off. The man is described as Hispanic and heavyset.
The infant, Ayanna, was found safe inside the vehicle just two miles away on Jerome Avenue. She was taken to Montefiore Medical Center and is now home with her family.
