A Roxburgh Park man will face court today over the alleged theft of a car with a baby on board from Mill Park last Friday.

The car was parked on Bush Boulevard, with an eight-week-old baby in a capsule in the back seat, when it was allegedly stolen about 10.20am.

The car was found soon after on Plenty Road with the baby unharmed.

The man, 27, has been charged with theft of a motor vehicle, theft from motor vehicle and driving while disqualified.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Broadmeadows magistrates court.
