Chicago police announced this morning that a 15-year-old boy has been charged with carjacking a woman in River North in August.
The hijacking occurred around 6:30 p.m. on August 9 in the 400 block of North Orleans.
At the time, a witness who was going to an event at the nearby Merchandise Mart told CWBChicago they saw a man pull a woman out of a white Toyota Camry. The witness reported that the carjacker climbed into the woman’s car, which had Wisconsin plates, and headed west with the vehicle. CPD said the victim was 24 years old.
A second vehicle believed to be involved in the hijacking, believed to be a Kia Seltos, fled with the carjacked Toyota.
Cops arrested the teenager on Thursday in the 1100 block of South Hamilton. Cook County’s Juvenile Center, including the Juvenile Temporary Detention Center and juvenile courts, are located on that block, suggesting the boy may have other matters before the courts
