Update: Suspect arrested.
Boston Police report they are looking for the guy they say stole a couple's pickup at Geneva Avenue and Leroy Street in Dorchester yesterday afternoon with their two-year-old child still inside.
When the man realized moments later he was driving around with a toddler, around 2:55 p.m., he drove back to the intersection and "placed the infant, who was still in the car seat, on the sidewalk," then sped off again, police say. Police add they later found the pickup, abandoned, just a mile up Geneva at Columbia Road.
Police say the couple had gotten out of the front seat of the pickup to check on their child, in the rear seat, when the guy jumped behind the wheel.
In addition to theft charges, the man also faces a charge of kidnapping, police say.
The suspect is described as a heavy-set, light skinned Hispanic male, last seen wearing a grey shirt/grey pants with long hair and a beard.
