    A man has been arrested for investigation of vehicle theft and kidnapping after authorities say he stole an SUV with a 7-year-old boy who was inside.

    Investigators say 21-year-old Paul Fernando Bojorquez of Moreno Valley was booked on Saturday and was being held on $50,000 bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.

    Sheriff's investigators say the child was inside the vehicle at a convenience store. The keys had been left in the vehicle, which was reported stolen.

    Deputies learned the child had been released unharmed from the vehicle on a freeway off-ramp. The child was reunited with his parents and appeared to be unharmed.

    Bojorquez crashed the vehicle into a fence and fled from the vehicle, but was eventually caught.
