PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla.- The man suspected of taking a black Kia Rio with a baby inside at a RaceWay gas station near West Palm Beach early Tuesday morning has been arrested, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

23-year-old Marquise Hudson faces charges of kidnapping and grand theft auto.
