Christmas Eve carjacking reported near Diversey Harbor

A Lakeview man was carjacked near Diversey Harbor early on Christmas Eve, police said. No one is in custody and no injuries were reported.

The 32-year-old man was sitting in his parked car in the 2700 block of North Lake Shore Drive near the Diversey driving range when a dark-colored vehicle with a female driver pulled up alongside him around 1:30 a.m., according to police. A man exited the second vehicle, opened the victim’s unlocked door, and forced the victim from the vehicle, police said.

Police said the victim sought help from the staff at Presence St. Joseph Hospital.

Taken was a silver 2015 Honda CRV that bears an Illinois license plate beginning with “Z900.” It was last seen heading southbound on Lake Shore Drive.

No descriptions of the offenders was available.
