Woman carjacked in Streeterville Monday afternoon

Two men carjacked a woman Monday afternoon as she sat in her vehicle near Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Streeterville, according to Chicago police.

The 26-year-old woman told officers that two men got into her car and ordered her to get out as she sat on the 200 block of East Huron around 4:45 p.m., a CPD spokesperson said.

She complied and the offenders drove away with her black 2013 Hyundai Sonata. Police later spotted the car as it fled through the Loop and onto the expressway. A city license plate reader detected the car traveling in the Garfield Park neighborhood about 20 minutes after it was taken.

A Northwestern University police officer who helped the woman said she described the robbers as two black males who are under 25-years-old. One had a tattoo by his right eye and wore a red shirt.

No arrests have been made. Area 4 detectives are investigating.
