Ayanna Julbe, Baby, Kidnapped By Mistake During Carjacking In New York (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Seven-month-old Ayanna Julbe went on a wild ride a few nights ago after the car she was sitting in was carjacked.

On Tuesday night, Ayanna's parents, Patrick Julbe and Jennifer Rodriguez, left her to idle in their idling SUV while they went to look at a phone case in a Bronx store.

When no one was watching, Ayanna was accidentally kidnapped when the vehicle was carjacked, according to the New York Post.

“He said, ‘Oh, look at this phone. She stepped out for a second as well,’” family friend Krystal Guzman told WCBS-TV “As she stepped out, some dude took the truck and apparently didn’t know the baby was in the back.”

The suspect quickly figured out that he had stolen more than a gas hog, and did something unusual for any car thief: He called 911. Twice.

After letting the authorities know that he'd made a mistake, he dumped the SUV at Goble Place and Jerome Avenue in the Bronx so the authorities could retrieve Ayanna, reported.

She was found unharmed, still in the back seat and taken to Montefiore Hospital for observation, according to the New York Daily News.

Police are still looking for the carjacking kidnapper, who is described as a heavyset man in a striped shirt and baseball cap, Yahoo News reported.
