ALTADENA (CBS) — Police say a pregnant woman and her toddler are safe after they were carjacked and kidnapped Saturday evening in Altadena.

The suspect is in custody, according to officials.

Authorities said the man took off with the woman and her child after being involved in an altercation inside a CHP office in Altadena.

Somehow, after being tased, the suspect was able to escape. He was reportedly being held after an alleged DUI arrest.

He was able to commandeer the vehicle with the mother and child, before crashing the vehicle in Lake View Terrace.

The suspect then bailed and he was apprehended a short time later.

The woman and child’s ages were not immediately available.
