UPDATE: Suspect accused of carjacking a vehicle with a baby inside

TUCSON - Tucson Police continue to put together the pieces of a crime spree that started with the carjacking of a car with a baby inside.

It all started Wednesday afternoon around 4:22 p.m., outside the Food City near Campbell and Irvington. Police say the suspect took a car there with a baby still inside. At some point the suspect must have realized the child was inside the car and dropped the child off at an apartment complex near Park and Drexel.

The suspect then took off and ended up crashing the car at Aragon and Promenade. Tucson Police say the man ran from the scene, broke into a house and grabbed the keys to a van. He took off in that van, but officers began to catch up with him.

Around 5 p.m., the suspect crashed into a fence at Wakefield Middle School near 6th Avenue and 44th Street. No one was hurt there, but witnesses on scene tell News 4 Tucson children had been playing in the area just minutes before the crash.

The suspect took off yet again, but TPD officers managed to stop him at 6th Ave. and 32nd Street.

We'll bring you more information on this story as we get it and on News 4 Tucson Live at 10.
