A 9-year-old girl reportedly walked barefoot with her baby brother in her arms after they were left behind on a Nevada street by their kidnapper.

The suspect, identified as Mario Estrada, 38, was later arrested after he crashed into another vehicle.

The incident happened Monday evening when Karen Quinn stopped at a 7-Eleven store on Cheyenne Avenue, Las Vegas, to use the ATM. She had left her 9-year-old daughter and 11-month-old son inside her SUV with the engine running, the New York Post reported.

After entering the convenience store, the mother-of-five spotted Estrada sitting at a slot machine near the front door. She described him as "bad in spirit." She then saw him exit the store, walk toward her SUV and peer inside.

A store employee said the mother began "screaming for her babies" at that point.

"He opened the [car] door and I tried to grab him, and I grabbed his sweater in the door, and he reversed, and kind of rolled over the top of my foot," Quinn told FOX5. "And I was like, 'Please, my kids are in the car! Please! My kids are in the car!' He looked back at my daughter. She was like, 'Mom! Mom!'"

"And I was like, please just let them out, you can have the car. Just let them out, let them out!" she added.

The man stole the vehicle with the children inside while Quinn chased the car on foot for miles "until I couldn't anymore."

Estrada eventually let the children out on Decatur Boulevard and drove off.

The 9-year-old girl carried her toddler brother in her arms.

"My daughter ran five blocks from the store with my 11-month baby, with no shoes on," Quinn told the outlet.

Police soon located the children and informed the mother.

"He said, 'We have your kids.' And when he said that, I just fell to the ground. I was like, 'Thank you God, thank you God, thank you,'" the mother added.

An officer spotted the stolen SUV and started to chase the vehicle. The suspect crashed the car into another vehicle and then tried to flee on foot. He was arrested and was facing charges of kidnapping, child abuse and grand larceny, WIS TV reported.

Quinn said her children are still traumatized from the incident but are safe.
