Three white women steal a baby stroller and run out of the store. One left her baby behind.
A group of women walked into the Bambi Baby store with their children on August 16th just before 6 pm, in Middletown New Jersey.
As two of the women pretended to browse around trying to keep employees busy, one of the women went for a stroller.
When they all left, a couple of minutes later one of the women came back in when she realized she forgot her baby.
The store manager, Justin explained:
“I had a couple of customers in the store, and then three women walked in behind another customer. Two of them distracted me, and then one walked out with the stroller. And then a couple minutes later, one of them comes back in because they left their child in the store.”
Police say the women started driving away, and that’s when they realized one of them forgot their child behind.
Justin says when he approached the woman who came back for her child about the stroller, she ran away:
“I (noticed the stroller was gone), however, I didn’t want to jump to conclusions, so I definitely walked around the store first and then started checking the camera and then noticed the stroller had been taken. And then right before I called the cops, the girl had come walking back in to retrieve the child. And at that point after she had walked out, I said, ‘Hey, I’m pretty sure you guys stole my stroller. I’d like it back.’ And she just kind of ran off, and at that point I dialed 911.”
The company shared the footage on their social media to try and get the suspects caught:
Two of the suspects were caught a few days later, but the third still hasn’t been found.
