NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) — Police say a man in Virginia brought along an unlikely companion as he committed a string of late-night crimes: His 2-year-old son.

WAVY-TV reported Monday that the child was not injured. But 29-year-old Lundy Riley has been arrested on charges that include robbery, burglary and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Police in Newport News said Riley tried to break into an auto repair shop at about 3 a.m. Sunday. Riley then went to a 7-Eleven across the street and allegedly tried to rob the clerk of her car keys.

Police said Lundy then assaulted a man in an unsuccessful attempt to get his car keys.
