CHICAGO — An armed carjacker dumped one hijacked car and immediately took another at gunpoint in Logan Square early Monday morning.
Chicago police said a 45-year-old man was in the 1600 block of North Albany when the carjacker approached him around 12:09 a.m. The hijacker, wearing all black clothing with a black ski mask, displayed a gun equipped with a laser, robbed the victim, and demanded the keys to his cherry red 2011 Lexus RX 350.
But the carjacker left a hijacked 2014 Nissan Altima at the scene. It was hijacked from near the intersection of Austin and Dickens in Belmont Cragin on Saturday.
In that case, a man wearing a black ski mask displayed a gun with a laser to rob and hijack the victim. He left a stolen vehicle at that scene, too.
The hijacker is described in CPD reports as Black, about 5’8″ tall, and skinny. In Belmont Cragin, he wore a gray and brown hoodie.
