Video shows police as they discover a vehicle that was abandoned after being stolen with two children in the backseat.

The Oklahoma City Police Department has released two body cameras videos showing officers as they come across a vehicle that was stolen from a woman around midnight June 12 in the 7400 block of NW 7th Street.

The woman told police that her 4-year-old girl and 10-year-old son were asleep in the backseat of the vehicle and she had stopped to speak with her church's pastor when four teenagers jumped into the vehicle and sped away.

The teenagers forced the 10-year-old out of the vehicle at a stop sign. Police then began searching the area for the vehicle, which was found a short distance away in the parking lot of an apartment in the 900 block of Greenvale Road.

Video shows officers approaching the running vehicle, which they discover to be abandoned. Officers open the back driver's seat door of the vehicle and find the girl safely inside.

Police have yet to announce any arrests in the case. The driver that stole the vehicle was described as a tall, thin boy with a mo-hawk haircut. He was reportedly wearing a gray and white hooded t-shirt during the incident.
