Gunmen carjack couple at gunpoint in Lakeview

CHICAGO — Armed men carjacked a couple in Lakeview overnight, Chicago police say, but cops found the victims’ car and another stolen car abandoned in the area less than an hour later.

The victims, a man and woman both 43 years old, said they were sitting inside a parked Acadian Beaumont in the 1500 block of West Wolfram when the carjackers pulled up in a black car around 2:18 a.m., a CPD spokesperson said.

Two men got out of the other car, displayed guns, and demanded the couple’s property and their car. They complied, and the carjackers drove away with the vehicle, followed by the black car.

Police found both vehicles and some of the victims’ property near the 1400 block of West Oakdale around 3 a.m. The other car was a stolen Hyundai Elantra.

CPD did not release descriptions of the suspects. One of the victims had a firearm in the vehicle when it was taken, but it is unclear if police recovered the weapon with the car.
