Baby found safe and well as police hunt car-jackers

A mother and her four-week-old baby have been re-united after a car-jacking in Acocks Green this afternoon (Thursday 19 July).

The drama unfolded as the Birmingham mum pulled up on her drive and was immediately approached by two men. As she struggled to get her child out of the grey Audi A3, the pair drove off injuring her in the process.

Officers across the city were immediately mobilised to search for the baby and 45 minutes later an ambulance crew at Small Heath Health Centre in Chapman Road found the tot safe and well… and still in her car seat.

The little girl was taken to hospital to be re-united with her mother, who was receiving treatment for leg injuries.

Force Incident Manager Chief Inspector Tony Cole said: “Our primary concern was the safe return of this young child and dozens of officers, including specialist resources, were drafted into the search, which I am so pleased has resulted in her safe return.

“We are still determined to trace the offenders who have put this mother through a 45 minute nightmare that she will never forget.

“Please help us with any information you may have which will assist our search.”

The grey Audi A3 S Line has the registration number BJ66 YLV.
