NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Who steals a kid's puppy off the street?

A Bronx family told cops their 2-month-old pitbull terrier was stolen from them on May 6, after they'd owned it for just a couple of days.

Cops say Luna the puppy was being pushed in a stroller when she jumped out and ran off near 190th Street and Jerome Ave.

Hector Santiago said he didn't realize the dog had run off, and when he did it was too late, someone had driven off with Luna.

"We don't have Luna home, the kids always ask for her," Janira Santiago told CBS2.

Witnesses say a woman in a white BMW scooped up the dog and drove off.

Cops are looking for a black woman between 20 and 25-years-old in a pink track suit.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this female or location of the puppy is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
