CHICAGO - A child was briefly kidnapped by a carjacker on Saturday in Chicago.
The 8-year-old boy was sitting inside the car at Belmont and Christiana in the Belmont Gardens neighborhood around 1:25 p.m. with the 36-year-old owner of the car standing in the parking lot outside the car.
A woman came up and jumped into the driver's seat. The 36-year-old tried to get back into the car to fight her off, but couldn't.
The boy, who was still inside the car, got out at Belmont and Kimball, just a couple blocks away.
The carjacker took off northbound on Kimball.
The boy was not injured. The 36-year-old car owner was taken to the hospital to be treated for shoulder and ankle injuries.
