    A young boy was found safe after carjackers stole a vehicle while he was still inside in Philadelphia's West Oak Lane section Wednesday. 

    The 6-year-old boy was with his 36-year-old father on the 7500 block of E. Tulpehocken Street Wednesday at 4:50 p.m. when they were approached by four men at gunpoint, police said.

    The suspects stole the man's vehicle, a 2006 silver Mercedes Benz R350. The boy as well as another passenger, a family friend, were both inside the vehicle at the time. The robbers also stole an unknown amount of money, sunglasses and a phone, police said.

    The suspects dropped the boy and man off at W. Cheltenham Avenue and Mayland. They were not hurt and both walked home. 

    Later Wednesday night, police located the abandoned SUV at 3rd Street and Fisher Avenue. But the suspects are still on the loose.
