A thief in Devon stole a car with a baby still in the rear seat before returning a few minutes later with the child.
The baby's mother had left three children in her unlocked Renault Scenic while she made a delivery in Tiverton at 11.55am on Saturday.
Her daughter stood outside the vehicle and the woman's five-year-old nephew and 14-month-old son remained in the back.
But as they waited for the mother to return, a thief opened the rear door of the car and pulled the nephew out.
The man, in his 40s, then drove the vehicle through a series of one-way streets before returning to the original location, Kings Street.
He removed the child seat with the boy, dumped it on the pavement and drove off.
A 47-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the theft.
A new visitor centre for the Grand Western Canal has opened its doors today in Tiverton. Visitors to the 11 mile attraction, which stretches from Mid Devon to Lowdwells near the Somerset border, will be able to learn about the canal's heritage and wildlife.

Devon County Council has pledged £3 million to restore it. It's hoped the repairs will be finished in time for the 200th anniversary of the canal next year.
