MIAMI (AP) - A Hialeah man accused of trying to carjack a woman
outside a Miami store then punching a baby to "keep her from
crying" is facing criminal charges.
Francisco Oses is scheduled to appear in Miami-Dade Circuit
Court on Feb. 4. He is charged with attempted carjacking, four
counts of attempted kidnapping and aggravated child abuse.
Police said Oses, 37, tried to carjack 29-year-old Jessica Baez in December.
Baez, who was waiting for her husband at a Walgreens
parking lot, had four children in the Mitsubishi Endeavor.
According to police reports, Oses punched Baez during a struggle
for the SUV, then struck the 18-month-old girl. He fled the scene
and was on the run until Wednesday.
