Carjacked car had an infant inside, police say

An infant was inside an SUV that was stolen Wednesday afternoon from a Northeast Washington gas station, D.C. police said.

The white Porsche Cayenne was stolen in the 5500 block of South Dakota Avenue as a woman who had been driving the vehicle was getting gas about 2:50 p.m., said Officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman. Police found the vehicle and the baby inside in the 400 block of Kennedy Street NE about 20 minutes later.

The baby was unharmed and police did not identify the age or gender of the child.

Police were searching for three men in a teal green Infiniti who were seen leaving the Kennedy Street location, police said.
