Pair carjacked at gunpoint near Lightfoot’s Logan Square home

A man and woman were carjacked Tuesday morning a block away from Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s home in Logan Square.

Two males got out of a dark-colored Hyundai about 1 a.m. and approached the pair’s Honda Hatchback in the 2600 block of North St. Louis Avenue, Chicago police said.

The duo flashed a gun and demanded the pair exit the car and hand over their cellphones, police said. The man and woman, both in their 20s, were uninjured.

The suspects left in the victims’ car.

Lightfoot’s home is around the corner in the 3400 block of West Wrightwood Avenue.

Police in Chicago faced a steep rise in carjackings over the last year. In 2020, carjackings in Chicago more than doubled compared with the year before.
