ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say it took about 45 seconds for thieves to pull up to a St. Petersburg home and steal a Lexus SUV with a 1-year-old child inside.

Cameron Mazoochi tells Bay News 9 (https://bit.ly/2kBKOqY ) he stepped away from his vehicle Wednesday to go back inside his home to get his allergy medicine. When he got back outside the SUV was gone, with the child inside. His cell phone was also inside the vehicle so he had to pound on neighbors doors to get someone to call 911.

Police found the SUV two blocks away with little Madison still inside. She was unharmed.

Marzoochi says he hopes someone will recognize the thieves from the surveillance video taken from outside his home. Police say the men arrived in a white four-door sedan.
