A man is accused of committing two armed carjackings less than an hour apart in Englewood and Scottsdale last week.

Keshawn Wordlow, 18, stole a 37-year-old woman’s car at gunpoint about 11:20 a.m. April 30 in the 200 block of West 66th Street, Chicago police said.

Later, about 12:10 p.m., Wordlow approached a 27-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man in the 8300 block of South Pulaski Road and took their vehicle and property through force, police said.

Wordlow was arrested Thursday and charged with two felony counts each of vehicular hijacking with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm, police said.

He was denied bail at a court hearing Friday, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office.

Wordlow was expected back in court May 14.
