New York -

A New York car thief drove off in an SUV, only to discover there was a witness to the crime: a baby in the backseat.

Maybe he had a conscience, or just didn't want to have to change nappies, but the thief, captured on surveillance video posted on NBC television, quickly dumped his hot ride.

The parents of the seven-month-old baby girl had left her in the vehicle late on Tuesday while they stopped at a store in the Bronx.

Footage showed the thief look around, then climb into the car, which had been left running, and take off. But he drove only a short distance before abandoning it and its precious cargo.

NY1 television posted pictures of the carjacker's cute, unwilling partner in crime and quoted a caregiver saying she was unharmed and being evaluated in hospital.

There was no immediate information regarding the whereabouts of the thief. - Sapa-AFP
