    A man stole a woman's car in Staten Island while her 3-month-old son was inside.

    One woman got more than she bargained for after she went to get a coffee, but got her car and child stolen from a Staten Island parking lot instead.

    A 30-year-old woman went inside a Dunkin' Donuts and left her 3-month-old son in her Ford Edge SUV parked near Richmond Avenue and Richmond Hill on Saturday, police said.

    Shortly before 10:15 a.m., she called 911 and informed police that her car had been stolen with her baby in the backseat while she was inside Dunkin' Donuts. Authorities said the suspect fled with the dark-colored Ford Edge and child across the Verrazzano bridge.

    Once the suspect arrived in Brooklyn, he abandoned the SUV, with the infant inside, near 54th Street and Third Avenue in Sunset Park. The child was unharmed.

    It's unclear whether he knew there was a baby in the backseat at the time of the theft.

    Police are looking into whether the mother of the infant will face any charges. Officers are still searching for the suspect.
