CASSELBERRY, Fla. (AP) - Police say a central Florida man tried to steal a car with a child inside.
    
Casselberry police said 28-year-old Crystal Martin left her car running Sunday with her 2-year-old daughter inside while she made a quick run into a dollar store.
    
Authorities said the suspect climbed into the car and drove off as Martin chased after him. WESH-TV (http://lb.vg/87q92 ) reports he later pulled into a car dealership where an employee spotted him and reported his erratic behavior.
    
Martin was reunited with her daughter and issued a citation for leaving the girl in the car.
    
The man was committed for a psychiatric evaluation. His name is not being released, but police said they will file grand theft auto charges on him.
