HOUSTON -

Police are looking for the man that stole a car with a two-year-old in the back seat.

A mother parked in the driveway of a house on Cortlandt and East 37th Saturday morning around 1. She went inside with the engine still running and the child in the back seat, according to HPD.

Police said a man jumped in the car and took off with the child still inside.

An HPD unit spotted the car two hours later on Camry on Lawn Street. A short chase ensued, and police said the driver lost control, crashed in a ditch, and took off running on foot.

The child was still in the backseat unhurt. It was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

Police are still looking for the man.
