Police have released surveillance video of the creep who stole a car with a baby inside.

Fortunately, the 7-month-old girl is back home with her family in Brooklyn, but it was those tense moments they could’ve done without.

The parents say they went into a cell phone store in Bedford park late Tuesday afternoon, and left the car running.

JeepThey say that’s when someone hopped in and drove off.

Police found the car at the intersection of Goble Pl. and Jerome Ave. after receiving an anonymous phone call.

They believe the suspect may have felt guilty and called them. If you recognize the man in the surveillance tape, call police.

According to a source, two calls made from payphones in Washington Heights telling police where to find the Jeep.  One was made from Audobon Ave. and one from St Nicholas ave around 7:45 p.m.

The mother took the baby to Montefiore Hospital as a precaution.


No arrests have been made, the investigation is ongoing.
