A Logan Square man beat up and carjacked a driver in the middle of Milwaukee Avenue on the afternoon of June 7, prosecutors say. Angel Ayala, 19, was arrested at his home last Monday after the victim identified him in a photo line-up, according to prosecutors.
The 21-year-old victim was driving southbound around 3 p.m. when two men emerged from another car and beat him up on the street in the 1200 block of North Milwaukee, according to police. Ayala then got into the victim’s 2016 Ford Fusion and sped away, followed by the other car, police said.
A witness wrote down the license plate number of the other vehicle, which eventually led police to Ayala.
Ayala is charged with one felony count of vehicular hijacking. Judge David Navarro ordered him held without bail.
