Thief steals car with baby sleeping in back seat

POLICE are on the hunt for a thief who stole a car with a baby sleeping in the back.

The baby boy’s father reportedly left the vehicle running in the driveway of a home in the Perth suburb of Willagee on Sunday night when a man, believed to be walking past, jumped in the car and drove off.

The thief crashed the vehicle nearby not long after and fled on foot.


The baby miraculously escaped with only a bleeding lip.

Police are currently on the hunt for the offender.
