Newark police say the woman was inside her parked vehicle at around 7:50 p.m. Thursday when she was forced out of it and a suspect sped off with her 3-year-old and 11-month-old inside.

An Essex County sheriff found the SUV a short time later with the children unharmed.

Police are working to identify the suspect.
