In the last two months, twelve armed vehicular hijackings on the Far South Side can be tied to a single group of people, according to police.

In each of the incidents, the offenders approached the victims, pulled out handguns and demanded their property and car keys, according to a statement by Chicago police. Then they drove away with the victim’s vehicle.

The carjackings took place at all hours of the day — sometimes in the early morning, sometimes late at night and sometimes in broad daylight.

Police did not offer a specific description of the carjackers, but said they wore hooded sweatshirts tied tightly over their heads, or they covered the lower part of their faces.

  • at 10:35 a.m. Sept. 25 in the 11400 block of South Edbrooke Avenue;
