CHICAGO — A 17-year-old boy was one of the people who carjacked, robbed, and physically attacked a driver in Chinatown earlier this month, Chicago police say.
The victim, a 21-year-old man, was in a parking garage in the 200 block of West Cermak when the carjackers confronted him around 8:30 p.m. on January 3. He later told police that three men attacked him, implied they had a gun, and took his Porsche, according to a CPD report. They also took his wallet and phone.
Members of the Chicago Police Department’s vehicular hijacking task force arrested the 17-year-old in the 3200 block of West 87th Street on Wednesday, police said.
He is charged with vehicular hijacking, aggravated robbery, and aggravated battery in a public place. No other details are available about him or his history because he is a juvenile, and that information is shielded by state law.
