CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Chicago man is charged after allegedly stealing a car with a child inside earlier this week on the city's West Side.

The mother got out of her car with one of her children and that's when police say Ardell Walker, 26, hopped in and took off with her 1-year-old still inside. The child was not harmed.

Police caught up with Walker in Cicero. He faces several charges including kidnapping and vehicular hijacking.
