Police were searching Tuesday for a man who kidnapped a teenage girl and her infant daughter Monday evening.

The girl, 15, was waiting to catch a bus at 3100 S. 4000 West about 5:30 p.m. when a man stopped and offered her a ride, West Valley police Sgt. Valeen Illsley said.After the girl declined, the man became angry, pulled out a semiautomatic handgun and ordered the mother and child to get into his car. The man then blindfolded the teen.

Investigators said the man drove around for about 15 minutes but became flustered when the baby started crying. He then dropped the two off near 4000 S. Redwood Road.
