Boy, 15, carjacked driver on Andersonville, Uptown border: Chicago police

CHICAGO — A 15-year-old boy was one of the armed carjackers who took a driver’s vehicle on the border of Anderson and Uptown last month, Chicago police say.

The driver, 30, told police he was carjacked while parking in the 1300 block of West Foster around 1:15 a.m. on July 16.

A stolen Hyundai Elantra pulled up near his car, and several people got out, including two armed with handguns, a CPD spokesperson said. They robbed the man and drove away with his 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, last seen heading east down an alley.

The CPD spokesperson said the Hyundai was reported stolen on October 28 from the 700 block of East 82nd Street. Cops found it abandoned in the 1200 block of West Winnemac shortly after the carjacking, according to a CPD report.

Cops arrested the 15-year-old yesterday in the 1200 block of South Throop. He is charged with aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm.
