Two women were carjacked at gunpoint Saturday evening as they sat in their car in Lakeview, police said. No one was injured. The offenders remain at large.

Around 10:20 p.m., the women were sitting in an SUV outside a residence in the 1500 block of West George when they were approached by three men, one of whom was armed with a chrome handgun, police said. The women, ages 26 and 55, complied with orders to get out of the vehicle at which time they were robbed of their personal belongings. The men then got into the SUV and drove westbound on George Street, police said.

The stolen SUV is a brown 2012 Honda CRV with a bike rack on top. It has Wisconsin license plates.
