2 juveniles arrested, gun recovered after pregnant woman is carjacked in the Loop, CPD says

Two juveniles face charges after they carjacked a pregnant woman at gunpoint in a Loop parking garage Tuesday evening, police said.

The 26-year-old victim was walking to her car when two males demanded her keys at gunpoint inside the garage at 195 North Dearborn around 9:56 p.m., according to a CPD report. That garage is located across the street from the Goodman Theatre.

She complied with their demands, and they escaped with her Honda.

Officers recovered a loaded handgun from the suspects, police said.

The victim was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for an evaluation, but CPD said she was not injured.
