Two men have been charged with carjacking a valet attendant during the lunch hour Tuesday outside of the Tortoise Club restaurant, 350 North State, police said.
According to CPD, Treshawn Duffie, 18, and 17-year-old Zimmerman Flowers approached the attendant around 12:45 p.m., Flowers then pulled out a handgun and demanded the keys to a woman’s 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the department said.
Police Tuesday said the carjackers sped across the State Street bridge with the valet following behind in a separate car. The Jeep crashed in the 400 block of North Kingsbury and the two occupants ran from the scene.
Duffie was arrested after a short foot chase, police said.
Flowers was arrested in the parking garage of the East Bank Club. An eyewitness told CWBChicago on Tuesday that he saw the carjacker get knocked to the ground by an East Bank Club building engineer. The robber then produced a handgun, which was knocked from his grip by another club employee, and additional building engineers moved in to pin the carjacker until police arrived.
Duffie is charged with felony armed robbery. Flowers is charged with armed robbery, felony possession of a weapon, and aggravated possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
They are due in bond court Thursday afternoon.
