A San Jose construction worker rescued a baby from a car stolen 90 miles away when he became suspicious about the driver. The baby had been the focus of a California Amber alert.

Colin Blevin's quick action to grab the 1-year-old toddler was the beginning of the end for Raymond Randy Gutierrez who was later arrested in Salinas and booked in the Monterey County jail, reported the San Jose Mercury News.

The incident started in Soledad at 5 a.m. on Monday when the vehicle, with the child inside, was stolen from a residential area while the boy's father ran back into his home to grab his lunch.

Two hours later, the vehicle was blocking the entrance to Ciarra Construction in San Jose. Blevin told authorities he told the driver to move. He said he had noticed the driver going to a nearby RV and apparently trying to convince people living there to take the child, said the Mercury News.

When the driver confirmed the child wasn't his, Blevin said he grabbed the toddler from the vehicle, unaware of the theft and kidnapping.

"I take the baby and I put him on my trailer, and I said, 'I'm calling 911,'" Blevin told the Mercury News. "The guy didn't really seem to care. I think he realized he messed up. He was in for a stolen car, and he stole a baby. He stole a child."

Blevin told KRON-TV that the driver appeared to be on drugs and he felt he had to take action. He said he saw the driver try to break into another vehicle before going back to the car he was in and taking off.

The construction worker also credited a homeless woman for the rescue. He said the driver had been trying to convince to take the child, too, and she gave off facial expressions about possible trouble.

"This is one of the good feeling days, when things worked out right," Soledad Deputy Chief Damon "Chuck" Wasson told the Mercury News. "The child is safe, and the parents get their baby back. This is a win for us."

It was not until San Jose police arrived did Blevin realize that an Amber Alert had been put out on the child.

"Then I find out I helped save an Amber Alert baby," Blevin told the Mercury News. "I was in the right place to help."
