Chicago police are investigating two armed carjackings reported Sunday evening in Lakeview and the West Loop. But, hijacking reports in the city are down sharply from the two most recent Novembers, which were the second- and fourth-worst months for carjackings since at least 2001, as traditional motor vehicle thefts, fueled by the “Kia boy” craze, skyrocket.
Yesterday’s hijacking in Lakeview occurred around 7 p.m. in the 1100 block of West George Street.
Two women were inside a white Toyota when the carjacker displayed a gun and demanded control of the vehicle, according to a Chicago police spokesperson. When the hijacker climbed into the car, the other woman, still in the back seat, began physically fighting with him, police said.
The second woman eventually exited the car, and then one of the women returned to the vehicle and sprayed the hijacker with pepper spray before he drove away with the car. Chicago police said the carjacker struck a parked car and stopped after a short distance to pick up an accomplice, then they sped away.
An officer at the scene described the hijackers as two Black men in their 20s. The primary hijacker wore a gray zip-up sweatshirt, and the accomplice wore a purple and green jacket.
