PASADENA, Md. — Police have arrested both men wanted in connection to the abduction of a 9-month-old child, on Easter Sunday at a Royal Farms in Pasadena.

The mother reportedly went into the store to buy something and left her child inside with the car still running, when 31-year-old Patrick Thomas Craig and James Leonard Villani allegedly got in and drove away.

A short time later, the stolen Kia Sorento was found abandoned with the child still in the backseat, in the 2400 block of Washington Boulevard in Baltimore City.

Luckily, the child was not injured.

Detectives first identified Craig as one of the suspects, and arrested him on April 13.

Two days later after releasing surveillance photos, Villani was identified as the second suspect and arrested.

As of Monday morning, Craig remains on the loose.

Anyone with information should call investigators at 410-222-4700.
