SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police arrested a San Francisco resident for kidnapping a 4-month old baby who was inside a car the man stole.

San Francisco police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said 33-year-old Solomon Alemu, who violated his probation during the incident, also faces child endangerment and car theft charges.

The car was stolen from Golden Gate Avenue and stopped by police less than three miles away on 7th Street, police said.

KRON-TV reports Wednesday that the baby was kidnapped in the car in the city's Tenderloin neighborhood. It was not immediately known if Alemu has an attorney.

Last week, an 8-year-old boy snoozing in the backseat of his family's running car slept through his brief kidnapping after the vehicle was stolen in front of his California home.
