WARREN — A 3-month-old girl who was reportedly asleep in a SUV stolen from a gas station at Nine Mile and Hoover Jan. 7 was found unharmed in the vehicle when it was recovered by police a short time later, just a few blocks away.
According to Warren Police Detective Scott Isaacson of the department’s Special Victims Unit, a 22-year-old man stopped to put gas in a gold, older model Chevy Suburban at about 7 p.m. He reportedly left the child in the running vehicle while he went inside to pay for gas.
“An unknown black male jumped in the car,” Isaacson said. “The vehicle was located at Marmon and Cadillac. The child was still asleep in the car seat and unharmed. The vehicle was still running. The suspect was gone.”
Isaacson said a Michigan State Police K-9 team was called to the scene but that an attempt to track the suspect was unsuccessful.
The suspect was further described as 20 to 23 years old and 6 feet 4 inches to 6 feet 6 inches tall with a thin build. He was reportedly wearing a black hat.
Detective Sgt. Brian Kijewski said the incident remained under investigation but that it was unlikely charges would be sought against the child’s father.
Anyone with information about the suspect can reach Warren detectives at (586) 574-4180.
