A suburban Chicago man is accused of jumping into a car that had been left idling and driving away with a baby in the backseat.

Adan Ozuna was charged Friday with unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle and endangering the life of a child.

Police in the northwest suburb of Bensenville say a man stole the car around 12:30 a.m. Thursday. It had been parked but left running outside an apartment complex. The child's mother told police that as she went inside the building, a man came out and drove off with the car and her 18-month-old daughter.

About six hours later, police found the car and the child, who was unhurt.

Ozuna, who lives a block from where the car was found, was arrested Friday.
