A 29-year-old man was carjacked at gunpoint early Friday in Albany Park on the Northwest Side.

He was sitting inside his car about midnight in the 4900 block of North Keystone Avenue when three males wearing all black approached him, Chicago police said.

One of the suspects tapped the driver’s side window with a handgun and told the driver to get out, police said.

Two of the suspects got inside his gray 2019 Ford Explorer and drove away, police said. The third suspect left the scene on foot.

In 2020, carjackings in Chicago more than doubled compared with the year before.
