A teen boy from Chicago charged with a carjacking Saturday in suburban Addison was ordered to be held without bail Monday in DuPage County court.
The boy faces a felony count of aggravated vehicular hijacking and a felony count of armed robbery, according to the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office.
About 10:45 p.m. Saturday, officers investigated an alleged carjacking near a Popeye’s restaurant, prosecutors said. A 21-year-old woman told officers that she got out of her vehicle and was confronted by three males, two of whom were armed.
They demanded her belongings, car keys, and threatened to kill her if she did not comply, prosecutors said. The trio sped from the scene in her car.
Officers nearby saw the vehicle speeding and pursued it, prosecutors said. With help from Illinois State police, the vehicle was tracked to Chicago.
As officers approached the stolen vehicle, the group ran, but one teen was taken into custody and returned to Addison, prosecutors said.
The teen is due back in court Feb. 8. Prosecutors said they plan to file a motion to try him as an adult.
