A kidnapping suspect, apparently in a hurry to get away, tossed a baby to a Chicago police officer early Monday on the West Side.

The baby was not hurt and was reunited with its mother.

Police said the two police officers spotted the man carrying the baby just after they had been alerted to a possible kidnapping in the 1500 block of South Pulaski. When police approached the man, who is in his 20s, he threw the child at a police officer.

Officials say the man was involved in a domestic disturbance before the alleged kidnapping and he and the police officers got into fight. All three were taken to the hospital for treatment.

No charges have been filed.
