carjackers targeting lone women sitting inside or standing outside her vehicle on the South Side.
Police said the latest of seven carjackings happened just after 6:30 p.m. Sunday in Hyde Park. A 37-year-old woman was robbed at gunpoint by three men wearing ski masks, police said.
Chicago Police Officer Roberto Garduno. “They approach the vehicle. They threaten them. They show a handgun at some time and then they take the vehicle by force.”
None of the victims have been injured, police said. Police described the male suspects as between 15-20 years old. And while officers can’t be absolutely certain the same offenders are involved in each and every case, that is how they are currently being treated.
“All the victims are describing the offenders with the same specifics, in the same age range, same ethnicity,” said Garduno.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Chicago police at (312) 747-8380.
