Adam Thomas reportingPolice have arrested a man they say tried to take a car with a baby in the back seat.

A woman was standing a few feet away from her car at a convenience store just off I-15 in Payson Thursday morning, when suddenly she noticed the car moving.

It turns out a man was inside the car, trying to steal it with the woman's baby inside.

The Deseret News reports the woman started to scream and ran toward the car. Her parents, who had followed in another car, did the same. The would-be thief stopped then ran off. Police caught a suspect a short time later.
