A man's car was stolen at a Wheaton gas station around 6:00 PM Saturday, January 25. One bigger problem: his 5-year-old son was inside the car at the time, at the Exxon at University Boulevard and Georgia Avenue.

Dewitt Mathews, who thought he had locked his car doors, saw his Nissan Maxima being driven away from inside the station's convenience store. Fortunately, the driver abandoned the vehicle across the street. Mathews' son was found unharmed inside, and suspect Christian Arias - a Silver Spring resident - is in custody, and facing serious charges and a lengthy prison term if found guilty.

ABC 7 has video of the bold-but-brief crime, and the panicked scene inside the convenience store.
