Woman allegedly tried to steal car with baby in back seat

THE presence of an 18-month-old child has seemingly stopped a woman in the middle of an attempted armed robbery.

Queensland Police said the woman threatened a 27-year-old mum with a syringe about 9.40am on Sunday in Collingwood Park.

The mum was getting in her vehicle at Goupong Park when the other woman threatened her.

QPS said the woman with the syringe first threatened the mother and then got in the car and closed the driver's door.

The mum then tried to get into her own vehicle, telling the attempted robber there was a child in the back seat.

"The female saw the child in the back, then exited the 27-year-old's vehicle before leaving in a car," QPS said.

Police said the suspect was described as a Caucasian woman in her 30s with a thin build and blonde hair.

She was reported to leave the scene with a man described as being in his 30s with a thin build and shaved blond hair.

QPS have called on anyone with information on the incident to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
