2 drivers carjacked simultaneously in Humboldt Park; another hijacked in Noble Square

Chicago police are investigating three armed carjackings reported Monday morning, one in Noble Square and the other two occurring simultaneously in Humboldt Park.

In Noble Square, a 55-year-old man was carjacked at gunpoint in front of his condo building in the 1400 block of North Ashland around 1 a.m.

A group of masked men pulled up in a dark blue sedan and stepped out to rob and carjack the man of his gray 2021 Lexus, a CPD report said.

The report indicated that the car the group arrived in was also recently carjacked. That occurred around 3:20 a.m. Saturday in the 1700 block of North Western Avenue in Wicker Park.

Also on Monday, four armed men carjacked two drivers at once in the 1100 block of North California.

A CPD spokesperson said both victims were exiting their cars when the hijackers robbed them and took their vehicles.

No offender descriptions were released.
