Woman Carjacked In Lakeview Saturday Morning

Police are investigating a carjacking that was reported near Belmont and Lakewood in Lakeview this morning.

The carjacked vehicle is similar to this Nissan Versa
Several residents near the 1200 block of West Belmont reported a woman screaming for help shortly after 4AM. One witness reported seeing the victim jump from her car as a man sped off in the vehicle.

The victim told police that an unknown man claimed to have a gun as he tucked a hand under his shirt to imply that he was armed.

The offender was last seen driving southbound on Lakewood then westbound on Fletcher in the woman's blue Nissan Versa hatchback bearing Illinois license plate A349501.

Police described the carjacker only as a black man who wore a gray sweatshirt.

  2. Just waiting for Alderpus Tunney's next e-mail blast with his picture cutting a ribbon for Mariano's on Broadway and welcoming the Broadway Art Fair. If there is a short one or two line about this car jacking - again it will be called an "isolated incident" like the record breaking "isolated incidents" of shootings/murders in August. The Mayor has 12 police officers at his home ( 2 in front and 2 in the back) 24/7 plus one or 2 cars that circle the block 24/7. They all come from the 19th district. Now I understand the saying " when you call 9-1-1 help is only hours away". I am only one voice since my taxes increased $7,000.00 this year.

    1. Glad to hear somebody finally gets it in the neighborhood!

      Hey but no worries he's protected 24/7 and do you really think he's paying all that money in taxes... LOL

  4. Do cars have GPS devices on them? Would be great to be able to turn it on remotely. I.E., Find my car.

    1. There was a thing called LoJack decades ago before iPhones.

  5. Chevrolet has the Onstar feature and has a GPS. They can find it remotely and shut it down of reported stolen.

  6. Buy a cheap older iPod touch, charge it up, enable Find my iPhone and throw it in the trunk. Charge it every couple days as needed. Now you have LoJack.

  7. Guns guns guns. They all have a gun. Where the hell are all these guns coming from? Ask the good reverend Jessie Jackson. He said they are coming into Chicago by the truck load. Really? From where? From whom? And not one comment from the mayor. What a joke Chicago has become. A very freighting joke.
