The vehicle that police say was used by the suspects who stole a car with a child inside in Eastchester on Thursday has been recovered in New Jersey.
Police say the owner of a BMW left their car running with a key inside, as well as a child in a car seat, in the Green Knolls section of town just after 8 a.m.
While the car owner was escorting another child to a nearby bus stop, the suspect jumped into the car and drove away, despite the efforts of the car owner to stop them.
The suspect drove a short distance before stopping and removing the child from the vehicle.
Witnesses say that neighbors spotted the man as he attempted to get back into the stolen vehicle, at which point he jumped into a waiting SUV.
That Audi SUV was found abandoned on the side of the road in New Jersey, where it had been reported stolen several days ago.
Anyone with information on the incident, or the suspects involved, is being asked to contact the Eastchester police department.
