Deputies Arrest Two Men For Stealing Car with Infant ; Mother and Boyfriend Charged With Child Abandonment.

Deputies have arrested and charged two men with stealing a vehicle that had a 16 month old baby in the backseat of the vehicle, and a male and female with child abandonment.

Deputies received an in progress call at the Shell Gas Mart in the 14100 block of Homestead road and Highway 59 north at around 12:05 a.m. this morning Monday January 13, 2020.

A 21-year-old female now identified as Kimberley Cook (9/10/1998) originally told deputies she and 29-year-old Anthony Blue (01/18/1990), left their 16 month old child in the vehicle as it was running to enter the store.

When they walked back out the Chrysler 300 was gone.

Deputies learned in the investigation that Cook and Blue entered the store to play 8 liner machines around 11:30 p.m., and would periodically check on the infant as it slept in the running unlocked car.

Two men Vincent Leon Cannady (07/05/2000), and Jabari Jonathan Davis (12/09/2001) saw the car running and took off in it.

The men left the child at McGregor Park located in the 5200 block of Calhoun Street.

The Houston Police department were called after a Park Ranger found the infant near a playground.

EMS personnel transported the child to a local hospital for observation and is in good condition.

The Chrysler 300 was located near Loop 610 and Hwy 225, a short time later and a pursuit was initiated.

The vehicle was stopped in the 1800 block of Candlelight Place.

Both Davis and Cannady were taken into custody without incident.

The two men are charged with auto theft, felony kidnapping.

Cook and Blue with child abandonment for leaving the infant unattended.
