A woman has allegedly stolen a car with a toddler in the back before being stopped by a group of strangers.
The alleged offender reportedly jumped into the car while its owner stood just outside on a property on Saint Paul’s Terrace at Spring Hill, Brisbane, about midday.
They then allegedly took off with the owner’s phone and the child in the car before being stopped by a group of strangers who kept her near the corner of Leichhardt St and Wharf St until police arrived.
A Queensland Police spokesperson said the ‘child who was in the back seat at the time was located unharmed in the vehicle’.
‘One person is in custody and assisting police with inquiries,’ the spokesperson confirmed.
More to come.
