SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sioux Falls police say a man stole a car from outside a convenience store without realizing a 2-year-old child was strapped in the back seat.

Police say the 36-year-old man stole the vehicle around 8 a.m. Monday. The child's mother had left the car unlocked and running in the parking lot while she went in the store.

Police used the mother's cellphone that was left in the car to find its location. Officers found the vehicle about 15 minutes after it was stolen, but the child was no longer in the car. The suspect told police that after realizing the child was in the vehicle, he dropped her off in her cars seat outside of a laundromat.

Authorities found the child still sitting outside the landromat. She was not hurt.
