The 24-year-old mother had a cut on her head, but the baby was not hurt. Witnesses told police a man forcibly entered the woman's car at a gas station in Baltimore and drove away with the woman and baby inside.
The car later sideswiped a state police cruiser before eventually being pulled over.
The suspect was arrested and charged with fleeing and eluding police, hit and run, and negligent driving.
