Police: Man steals car with boy, 5, inside; child unharmed
CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say a man in Ohio stole a car with a five-year-old boy inside and took off, later dropping the child off unharmed.
Cleveland police say boy’s aunt parked her car at a gas station Wednesday afternoon and left it running while she headed inside. A station employee told police a man got into the car almost immediately and drove away, with the aunt running after the vehicle.
Authorities say a citizen followed the car, and the suspect fired at least one shot at that person. No injuries were reported.
Police say the suspect dropped the boy off a short time later at an intersection about a mile from the gas station, and the child was reunited with his family.
Authorities were searching for the car and the suspect.
