Video: Man steals car with baby inside, parents rescue

The unidentified man jumped into their running 1997 Pontiac Grand Am and attempted to drive off with 6-month-old girl

By PoliceOne Staff

KANSAS CITY — Melanie and Aaron Richman had parked their car in a Kansas City parking lot on the way home from a road trip when a man jumped in the vehicle and took off. Inside the car was the Richmans' 6-month-old daughter, Samantha.

In the surveillance footage below, you'll see Mealanie bust out the window of the vehicle and hang on for dear life. Her husband takes chase as well and launches into a "spring-loaded swan dive" to try and rescue his daughter.

Police are looking for the suspect, who remains at large.
