Man leads police on chase with baby in car

FRESNO, Calif.

Officers say they tried to pull a man over for a traffic violation in the Figarden area Wednesday night, but he kept going. When they eventually got to the Save Mart parking lot near Ashlan and West, the suspect ran inside to get away from officers -- leaving his one year old child in the car.

Officers say they didn't know the child was in the car, until the man got out.

The man eventually came out of the store and was arrested for felony evading and child endangerment. No customers at the store were impacted.

The child is now in the care of his mother.
