SALT LAKE CITY — A 1-year-old boy was safely located Saturday night after the vehicle he was in was carjacked.
At about 9 p.m., a woman parked her car near 800 S. 900 West and left the boy in the vehicle while she briefly knocked on the door of a residence on that street, according to Salt Lake City Police Lt. Robin Heiden. At that moment a man entered the car and drove off with the child still inside.
About 35 minutes later, the child was safely located at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray in good condition, Heiden said.
