Two men tried to carjack a woman at gunpoint as she loaded groceries into her car at an Old Town grocery store on Wednesday morning, police said. The robbery failed when the victim flagged down a nearby security guard.
The men approached the woman as she placed groceries in her black Audi on the parking lot at Jewel-Osco, 424 West Division, around 9:30 a.m. Surveillance images released by police show the two suspects in the area around the time of the crime.
Police said the man seen without a shirt pulled out a handgun and demanded the woman’s keys. She complied and the two men got into her car. But the pair ran away when the victim got the attention of a shopping plaza security guard.
