14-year-old wanted for carjacking car with baby, child inside

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Police Department is searching for a teen carjacking suspect after a car with two children inside.

MPD said two children were found safe after the vehicle, a red 2004 Chrysler Pacifica, was taken from S. Perkins Road just after 8:20 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said the driver of the vehicle was pushed to the ground, and the teen took her vehicle.

The two children, 2-month-old and a 4-year-old, were found safe in the abandoned vehicle on Willow Creek in between Centennial Drive and Wooddale Road.

"This could have been real bad," MPD spokesman said. "We are thankful the children were found safe, but we want to encourage everyone that when you get out of your vehicle, take you keys out of your vehicle. Do not leave your car unattended."

The 14-year-old suspect is still at large.
