BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Police in Buffalo say the mother of a baby found inside a stolen car  will face charges alongside the 15-year-old boy and 18-year-old accused of stealing the vehicle.

Capt. Jeff Rinaldo says the 25-year-old woman has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Officials say she left the car running when it was stolen Saturday with her 2-month-old infant still inside.

Rinaldo says the two suspects, aged 15 and 18, are in custody for stealing the vehicle, and one of the suspects took the baby to a local hospital after stealing the vehicle.

Police say they've connected the two suspects to an armed robbery on Friday.
