Police Say Thief Used Daughter as Battering Ram in Attempt to Escape

A New York City mother allegedly used her adorable two-year-old daughter as both a lookout and a weapon as she tried to shoplift $4,117 in goods from Bloomingdale's posh SoHo location, sources told the New York Post.

When Jainaba Cham, 32, was confronted by store security while sneaking out with the loot, she rammed her kid's stroller into the guards in a desperate bid to make her escape, law-enforcement sources said Wednesday.

The toddler -- Miriama Jabbie, who turns three in February -- was in the stroller at the time.

Cham allegedly forced Miriama to stand guard outside a fitting room while she shoved the pricey pile of clothes into a bag. She left her seven-year-old son outside the store in the cold with a hat vendor she didn't know, said a security guard.
