Thief steals car, sleeping toddler after mom stops at garage sale

FORT WORTH - A man stole a car with a sleeping toddler inside Thursday afternoon.

Fabiola Garcia said the thief jumped into her still-running car when she stopped at a garage sale at about 3:30 p.m. in South Henderson Street in Fort Worth, Texas.

Her son, 2-year-old Ricardo Calderon, was sleeping inside the car.

"They came across the street and told me the little boy was in the car, and I called the police back and told them it was a kidnapping," witness Bobby Duncan said.
