CHICAGO — Police are searching for three men including a man who stole a van with a woman inside in the Loop.

The car crashed into a gray car near Wacker Drive and Michigan Avenue. Four men got out of the Pontiac and took off running, with police chasing after them.

One of the men ran toward the Hyatt Regency hotel and jumped into a Kia van that was left running with a woman sitting in the back seat.

The man drove the van to the South Side and left the woman at a gas station near 59th Street and South Ashland in Englewood.

Cops are still looking for that man, but arrested one other involved in the incident. They said they also found two guns in the Pontiac upon searching.

No one was injured.
