Police say the caller expressed great concern after seeing a man, who appeared to be on drugs, with a baby in the back seat of his car.
The caller “believed the male was in no condition to care for the baby,” police said.
A police report says that out of fear for the baby’s well-being, that person pulled the baby and car seat out of the car and called the police.
The man reportedly fled the scene.
San Jose Police officers arrived and took custody of the child.
Officers requested medical personnel to make sure the baby was alright physically.
“The child was medically cleared and has been reunited with his parents at The San Jose Police Department,” police said.
The San Jose Police Department is conducting follow up and assisting in the investigation.
No further details are available at this time.
