Baby Falls From Stroller as Dad Steals Electronics: Police

Baby treated for minor injuries after incident, officials say

Police say a Texas man accused of stealing $75 worth of electronics had his baby along but her stroller hit a building and she fell out as they fled.

College Station police say Tracy Allen of Bryan then grabbed his 6-month-old daughter by the arm and broke through a fence Tuesday night.

He was caught when the baby's mother waited in a car but snatched the girl and wouldn't Allen into the vehicle.

Police say the baby was treated for minor injuries. A Wal-Mart employee also was slightly hurt trying to stop Allen, who was being held Wednesday on charges of child endangerment, theft and assault causing bodily injury.

Bond was $6,000. Jail records don't list an attorney to speak for Allen, who allegedly dumped the electronics during the chase.
