CHICAGO – CPD officers are looking for an unknown male after he allegedly carjacked a vehicle in a gas station parking lot with two kids inside of it.
Just before 5:15 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 5900 block of West Montrose Avenue.
Police said a 39-year-old woman was at a gas station when the man climbed into the driver’s side of the vehicle. A 5-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy were in the backseat at the time.
The two kids were later found uninjured in the 4300 block of North McVicker Avenue in Portage Park.
A video from a doorbell camera shows the moment the alleged carjacker drops off the two kids.
Jennifer Villanueva, a teacher, happened to be outside her home putting up Halloween decoration with her kids.
“We heard a a car coming super fast and take off,” Villanueva said. “I ran and I got the kids and brought them over.”
Police said the man fled southbound on Austin Avenue after the carjacking and has not been located.
The 39-year-old woman was also not injured.
Area North detectives are investigating.
