The assailants had handguns and threatened the woman to hand over the keys to her red Audi and give them her backpack. Then entered into the car and drove away immediately after the operation.

The police were able to catch wind of the robbery in time and pursued the carjackers for a while before they eventually escaped. Fortunately, the vehicle was later recovered on the west side of the city.

A similar incident happened in New Orleans involving a senior citizen.

Last month, a 55-year-old woman was robbed of her car outside a Target store in South Loop. She was reportedly approached by three men who grabbed the keys to her black Audi Q5.

One of the suspects drove away in the car while the other two fled the scene in a white Kia Soul. Around the same time, a similar incident happened in New Orleans involving a senior citizen.

Per WWLTV, a 73-year-old woman was carjacked in the St. Claude neighborhood on a Sunday morning. The victim, a rideshare driver, dropped off passengers around 2 am when she stepped out of the SUV to remove some items from the trunk.

Footage of the scene shows a man alight from a dark-colored 2018 Nissan Altima across the street, walk towards the SUV and then open the driver’s door. He started the ignition and drove off.

The senior woman who was leaning slightly on the vehicle was dragged for several feet before she fell off. She reportedly suffered minor injuries and was taken to a nearby local hospital for treatment.
