Two suburban men have been charged with carjacking a woman as she loaded groceries into her vehicle at an Old Town grocery store.

Camron King, 18, turned himself in to Matteson police at 10 a.m. on Saturday, according to a CPD spokesperson. The second man, 18-year-old Isaiah Jackson, was arrested by Chicago cops during a street stop in the 3100 block of North Christiana around 2:30 p.m. yesterday.

Both men are charged with one felony count of aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm. King, who lives in Blue Island, is being held in lieu of $30,000 bail. Jackson, of Calumet City, has been ordered without bail.

Police said last week that two armed men tried to carjack a woman as she loaded groceries at Jewel Osco, 424 West Division, around 9:30 a.m. on July 23rd. Investigators later released surveillance images of two men who were wanted in connection with the crime.

Both offenders got into the woman’s car to drive away, but fled on foot when a security guard began to intervene, according to a police report.
