Carjacking team mugged woman in parking lot of Goose Island Home Depot, police say

A group of men who hijacked two cars on the Northwest Side over the weekend robbed a woman as she walked on a Home Depot parking lot near Goose Island yesterday, according to Chicago police.

The 64-year-old victim said she was walking on the store’s lot around 12:15 p.m. when the offenders rolled by, and the driver reached out to grab her purse. She was dragged to the ground by the force and suffered bruises and cuts, a CPD report said.

On Sunday, the same men carjacked two vehicles — one in Avondale and the other in Hermosa, police said in a community alert Monday.

They took a white 2018 Chevy SUV at gunpoint in the 3000 block of North Kilbourn around noontime. Then, they hijacked a woman’s black Lincoln MKZ at gunpoint on the 3000 block of North Kedzie around 1:10 p.m.

Police released three suspect descriptions in the community alert:

  • male, Black, 20- to 23-years-old, 5’7” to 5’9” tall, 150 pounds, red sweatshirt
  • male, Black, 20- to 23-years-old, 5’7” to 5’9” tall, 150 pounds, bright yellow jacket
  • male, Black, 20- to 25-years-old, black sweatshirt
