Four Hours After A Man Stole A Car, A Baby Boy Is Found

An 11-month-old baby boy who was missing for almost four hours in Melbourne’s south after a man robbed an automobile with the infant sitting inside has been found safe and well.

The baby had been inside the rear of a white 2013 Toyota Rav 4 before it was stolen from Putt Grove in Keysborough at 2.10 pm on Tuesday.

Police say the child’s mother had briefly left the car while leaving the engine running before an unidentified man hopped into the driver’s seat and took off with the baby still on board.

The baby and the Toyota were subsequently discovered in Cranbourne at approximately 5.40 pm and a man was arrested.

Inspector Fiona Halford told reporters that she could safely say that they had located the child safe and well and that he was in the process of being returned to mum and dad, and that she just couldn’t thank the public enough, as it was a member of the general public who had identified police of the location and subsequently police attended that location and found the child safe and well.

Police earlier released pictures of a man they wanted to speak to and a car similar to the one stolen.

Investigations are ongoing and a 46-year-old man is helping police with their inquiries.

The man in question must have realised his blunder at some stage, but the mother and her son have now been miraculously reunited after the opportunistic robber took off with the woman’s car and her 11-month-old baby who was inside.

The baby was returned to his mother and father after a member of the public spotted the allegedly stolen white 2013 Toyota RAV 4 on a suburban street.

Harrowing CCTV footage of the moment the unidentified man takes off in the 4WD shows the baby’s distraught mother running after the automobile as it speeds away, but now the man allegedly driving the car has been arrested.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
