A woman was carjacked Monday night in the Lake View neighborhood on the North Side.

The 35-year-old woman was standing next to her vehicle in the 700 block of West Sheridan about 8:30 p.m. when a man walked up and implied he had a weapon, according to Chicago Police.

The suspect got into the woman’s vehicle and drove off, knocking her to the ground, police said. He headed eastbound on Sheridan, then southbound on Lake Shore Drive.

Police broadcast a description of the vehicle over their radios and found the vehicle abandoned in the 3200 block of North Lake Shore Drive.

The woman refused medical attention, police said.
