Ashland deputies are looking for a woman who allegedly stole a car with four children in tow.

First, the woman is suspected of stealing a silver Pontiac (pictured above) from Mayle's Used Cars in the 3300 block of Mahoning Rd. NE on Feb. 23.

Then, the Ashland County Sheriff's Office said the woman is a suspect in a robbery and vehicle theft that happened on Milton Township Rd. on Feb. 24.

The woman reportedly had four children with her at the time of the second incident, one of whom was a toddler she was carrying. Deputies said the older children were seen getting out of one stolen car and into the victim's car. The victim was then allegedly assaulted by the woman.

The relationship of these children to the woman and their ages are unknown. Authorities are concerned for their safety.

The woman is also a suspect in other similar crimes in Mansfield, according to deputies.

Anyone with information about the crime or the identity of this woman is asked to call Detective J. Martin at 419-289-8362.
