Armed carjacking charges filed against teens in Tri-Taylor

Two teens were charged in connection with an armed carjacking Monday night in the Tri-Taylor neighborhood.

A 37-year-old man was sitting in his vehicle just before 9 p.m. when two boys, 15 and 17, approached him and forced him out at gunpoint in the 2100 block of West Lexington Street, according to police.

The victim ran into a nearby building where he alerted Chicago police officers. The vehicle was not taken and the teens were taken into custody moments later, police said. They were each charged with one count of aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm.

No one was injured in the incident.
