Busy Mum leaves 7-week-old baby in the car to rush grab some takeaway, sees the car being driven off with her baby inside

A car was stolen with a seven-week-old baby inside after the infant’s mother left the vehicle unattended to collect some takeaway food.
The mum told police her baby was asleep when she parked up in a disabled space at the Chipotle restaurant in Fontana, California, on Tuesday afternoon.
She left the keys in the ignition of the 2013 silver Kia Optima to keep the air conditioning running while she went inside to pick up her order, police said. 
A man who had been sitting at a table inside the restaurant on Sierra Ave allegedly jumped inside the car and drove off, officials said.
The mother told police she ran after him in the car park, screaming at him to give her baby back, KABC News reported.
The theft was reported at 1.56 pm, the City of Fontana Police Department confirmed.
Less than 90 minutes later, the vehicle was found empty 17 miles away in Norco, by a Riverside County sheriff’s deputy.
A witness told the officer that a man had fled the vehicle with the baby in his arms and ran up a nearby hill.
The suspect was found a short time later with the child, who was unharmed.
Police confirmed Agabosi Christopher Tanpinu was arrested.
It is unknown if the mother will face any police action.
*Why leave a baby unattended in a parked car? Anything could have happened because leaving the car ignition on means that the doors were not locked. Even if for a few seconds, take the baby along and return with your child. If you have to make two trips because of the baby weight and the bags, do it*
