Two juveniles and two adults have been charged after a suburban man reported being carjacked at gunpoint in the Uptown neighborhood on Monday evening.

The victim, 25, told police that a young male offender displayed a handgun and ordered him out of his 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee in the 900 block of West Agatite at 6:57 p.m., police said.

Officers in the South Side’s Chatham neighborhood located the vehicle about two hours later in the 300 block of West 79th Street with assistance from CPD’s license plate reading technology, according to a police spokesperson and a department source.

Four people who were in the stolen SUV have been charged:

• A 15-year-old male juvenile is charged with vehicular hijacking
• A 17-year-old female juvenile is charged with vehicular hijacking
• 19-year-old Liliana Murillo is charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass to vehicle
• 19-year-old Tiara Moore is charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass to vehicle

No further information was available about the juveniles. The Chicago Police Department does not release mugshots of misdemeanor offenders to the media.
