A stolen white SUV with an 11-year-old child in the back seat was recovered about 10:30 p.m. tonight at Bailey and Gerald avenues, police said.

The vehicle was taken while the driver was in a neighborhood store.

Both the SUV and the child were in good shape, police said.

They added that the car thief, who apparently did not know there was a child in the back, abandoned the vehicle and fled.
