A woman with her 2-year-old daughter was carjacked in Wicker Park on the Northwest Side Wednesday, but both were uninjured.

The woman, 32, and the girl were sitting in a parked Cadillac sedan in the 1200 block of North Hoyne Avenue about 11:35 p.m. when two men approached, broke the driver’s side window with a bat and forced them from the car, Chicago police said.

The men fled in the car and were not in custody Thursday morning, police said.
