A mother and her baby were OK physically after being the targets of an attempted carjacking Wednesday in Pleasant Hill, and police said they have arrested a suspect.
Police arrested the unidentified female at a nearby hotel and said it was on suspicion of attempted carjacking. She had run away from the parking lot of Best Buy Baby in the 32000 block of Buskirk Avenue following the 10 a.m. attack, police said in a statement.
Officers at the scene determined from their investigation that the suspect tried to take the mother’s car by using force, police said, adding that she also is suspected of attempted to pry the baby from the mother’s arms.
The suspect ran to a hotel next door to the parking lot after the carjacking, police said.
No other information was available immediately.
