The child was still sleeping when her mother’s Toyota Camry was found abandoned 40 minutes later about a half-mile away, police said. The mother, although upset, also was not harmed during the theft, which came several hours after a a gunman carjacked a BMW in Newark this morning and drove away before noticing a three-month-old in the back seat. That child also was unharmed when the thief abandoned the vehicle.

In Camden, the car was forcibly taken at about 4:30 p.m. when the unidentified mother stopped to talk with someone at Mount Ephraim Avenue and Pine Street, police said. No weapon was used during the theft, police said.

The car was recovered shortly after 5 p.m. at 7th and Mount Vernon streets. No one was in custody several hours after the carjacking, police said. NJ.com
