Teen charged with kidnapping baby

A 17-year-old faces kidnapping and carjacking charges after authorities say he stole a car with a baby inside.

Daytona Beach police said their detectives spotted two stolen vehicles driving together on Friday. One had recently been stolen from a car dealership. The car stopped at a gas station where three men jumped out and took off.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the suspect ran through Bethune-Cookman University's campus and came upon a woman sitting in a car with her 1-month-old.

Police Chief Mike Chitwood said the suspect forced the woman to get out and wouldn't let her take her baby with her. Officers chased the suspect until he crashed into a parked dump truck.

The baby was not injured.

Authorities are still searching for the other two suspects.
