Video released by Maryland police shows the moment a teenage girl steals a woman’s car from a gas station with her 2-year-old daughter still strapped in the backseat.
Footage shows the driver parking her car at around 9.30am on June 16 at the station’s air pump and vacuum before stepping outside to put money in the machine.
As she walks around in the back of the car on the passenger side, the 15-year-old boy can be seen squeezing in, entering the driver’s door and accelerating as the victim holds onto the air pump hose.

Montgomery County police reported the victim’s 2-year-old daughter was in the back seat of the car when the theft occurred.
A witness who saw the incident reportedly followed the car and watched it stop a few blocks away to let in another 15-year-old boy.
Moments later, the two teenagers jumped up and fled, the witness said, perhaps realizing the baby was in the car with them.
Shortly after, police found two teenagers matching the description of the carjackers in downtown Silver Spring near the scene of the robbery.
