Teen who allegedly stole car with little girl in the back seat is charged with kidnapping

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - A scary situation when a car thief made off with a vehicle at a gas station that had a small child inside. It happened Saturday night at the Shell station on Bay Street.
Police Lieutenant C. Lee Bennett told 22News that the child's mother had stepped out of the car leaving the 3-year-old girl in the back seat. At that moment 17-year-old Justin Jackson jumped in behind the wheel and drove off.
Lieutenant Bennett told 22News that Jackson abandoned the car near his home on Stebbins Street and was arrested a few minutes later on Orleans Street.
The alleged car thief got more than he bargained for. Police have also charged him with kidnapping a child.
It's believed that Jackson didn't know the little girl was in the back seat when he took off with the car. The little girl is okay and has been reunited with her mother.
