TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police say a couple arrested for stealing $3,300 in items from a Tulsa mall injured their baby during the theft.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/1JvBzQG ) reports 43-year-old Robert Doak and 32-year-old Gena Carter were booked on complaints of grand larceny, child endangerment, child abuse and public intoxication.

An arrest report says the couple loaded the merchandise from Woodland Hills Mall into a vehicle parked near an entrance Friday night. According to the report, Doak went back into the mall, grabbed the couple’s unattended infant son by the head and throat and threw him into a truck.

The baby was taken to Saint Francis Hospital for treatment, police say. The extent of his injuries was not clear. A message left with Tulsa Police Department was not immediately returned.

Police say Doak and Carter had taken methamphetamine that day.
