Van Stolen From Calgary School With Little Boy Inside

CALGARY - Police in Calgary have taken a 20-year-old man into custody after a stolen vehicle crashed with a little boy inside.

A mother was picking up her son from school on Wednesday and briefly left her van and her four-year-old son unattended.

A man suddenly jumped inside and the van took off, quickly crashing into a median.

The suspect fled on foot but police dogs tracked him down to a nearby home.

Fortunately, the little boy was not hurt and did not need to be taken to hospital.
