Greek Australian

Greek Australian Ilias Sammy Latsis Aged 37 pleaded guilty to abducting a four-month-old boy in Adelaide after stealing a car at Klemzig with the baby still inside.

Latsis was arrested after allegedly stealing a Honda Jazz from outside a deli on Fourth Avenue on Monday morning, around 7.45 am.

The little boy was inside the car with the boy’s mother, a 29-year-old woman, inside the deli at the time.

The car was found abandoned at Enfield two hours later with the boy inside.

The baby was found safe and well and reunited with his mother at the scene.

According to the ABC, the 37-year-old man from Para Hills, appeared in the Adelaide Magistrates Court via video link on Tuesday afternoon, where his lawyer Stephen Ey entered guilty pleas to theft and abduction.

According to the SAPOL report, the baby’s mother was inside the deli when Latsis pulled up in a stolen Mazda ute and switched cars.

Latsis’ lawyer told the court his client wanted to express his remorse for the angst he caused the baby’s mother.

The court heard Latsis would negotiate with prosecutors on one count of committing an act likely to cause harm.

He has been refused police bail and will appear before the Adelaide Magistrates Court today, Tuesday 31 May.

A second man at the home was also arrested on an outstanding warrant.
