Hijackers pull driver from his car in the Loop this morning

Three hijackers pulled a man out of his car and drove away with it this morning in the Loop, police said.

The victim, 48, was sitting in his parked gray Honda Civic near the corner of State and Lake streets when the offenders walked up and opened the vehicle’s front doors at 4:42 a.m., CPD spokesperson Kellie Bartoli said.

They pulled the man out and then headed east on Lake Street with the car, she said. The vehicle was last seen turning south onto Michigan Avenue.

The man was not injured, and no arrests have been made.

All of the offenders wore hats or ski masks with black sweaters. According to initial information from the scene, one of the men’s sweaters had a red design on the front.
