MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis police are searching for a shoplifting suspect who used a tiny baby as a weapon against a security guard during an escape attempt Wednesday.

The incident happened early Wednesday afternoon at Wal-Mart on Austin Peay in Raleigh, where police say a woman was caught shoplifting. While attempting to escape, the woman hurled her two-month old nephew at a security guard. The infant, seated in a carrier, fell onto the concrete floor.

The suspect then threw the baby at a good samaritan who tried to tend to the infant.

The suspect ran from the store and escaped in a blue Ford Escort, abandoning the baby and his mother, who was in the women's restroom during the incident.

The child's mother tended to him as the infant was treated in the back of an ambulance.

Child abuse investigators are working with the infant's family to locate the suspect.

Officials said the baby will be okay. Neither the loss prevention officer nor the good samaritan were seriously injured.

All requests for comment from Wal-Mart management were referred to the retailer's corporate office.

Fully realising the hazards of the infant's own uncontrolled stream of destruction.

I thought biological warfare was against the Geneva Convention.
On some nights I still believe that a car with the fuel gauge on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio. - HST
