CHICAGO (CBS) — A woman was carjacked Thursday in the parking lot of Mercy Hospital & Medical Center in Bronzeville.
As CBS 2’s Asal Rezaei reported, the woman thankfully was not hurt. But police late Thursday were still searching for a suspect.
It was 4 p.m. when the 40-year-old woman’s Thanksgiving holiday turned to horror. She was in her car in the parking lot of the hospital, at 2525 S. Michigan Ave., when a man came up and opened her driver’s side door, police said.
The suspect then implied he was armed with a weapon and demanded the victim’s vehicle, police said.
It was unclear whether the victim was a worker or a visitor at the hospital.
The Bronzeville area has seen at least 11 carjackings in just the last month.
No one was in custody late Thursday. Area Three detectives were investigating.
