‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!’ 4-time felon, on parole for carjacking, committed another carjacking in Uptown this week, prosecutors say

A four-time convicted felon on parole for carjacking is accused of carjacking a driver outside a Chicago fast food restaurant on Thursday morning.

“Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” Alfredo Gutierrez allegedly ordered the victim in Spanish as the hijacking unfolded around 7:17 a.m. at Dunkin’, 4559 North Broadway, in Uptown.

The 60-year-old driver handed Gutierrez some change from inside his 2011 Mitsubishi truck, prosecutor William Lacy said, but Gutierrez became angry with the victim’s offering.

Gutierrez, 33, then told the victim to give him everything, including his jacket, wallet, and keys, as Gutierrez pulled a gun from a thermal backpack, Lacy said. The victim complied, then ran away when Gutierrez threatened to shoot him.

As the victim ran for help, Gutierrez crashed the Mitsubishi into another vehicle, then sped away, according to Lacy. Cops located the car around 10 o’clock that night in the 11000 block of South Western, a CPD spokesperson said.

Gutierrez was allegedly driving it while wearing the same clothes as the hijacker. He allegedly told cops that he bought the car for $100. Lacy said cops also found a fake gun inside a thermal backpack inside the vehicle.

Prosecutors charged Gutierrez with aggravated vehicular hijacking. Judge Maryam Ahmad ordered him held without bail.

In November 2021, Gutierrez received a six-year sentence for a carjacking he committed three years earlier. After receiving the state’s standard 50% sentence reduction and credit for time spent in jail before pleading guilty, he didn’t spend a single day in prison, according to Illinois Department of Corrections records.

That may change now, however. State officials are moving to revoke his parole in the 2018 case.

He has previous felony convictions for being a felon in possession of a firearm, manufacture-delivery of cannabis, and possessing two or more fictitious IDs.
