Police auto crashes on Eisenhower, 2 carjacking suspects arrested

A Chicago police vehicle crashed on the Eisenhower Expressway late Monday during a chase that nabbed two carjacking suspects after a weekend that saw almost a dozen carjackings across the city, according to authorities.

The on-duty Monroe District officers pursued the suspects for a carjacking shortly after 9:30 p.m.in the 800 block of North Racine, according to Chicago Police.

As the pursuit continued onto the Eisenhower Expressway, the stolen white Jeep smashed into a wall near Austin Boulevard in Oak Park.

Two suspects were in custody and a weapon was recovered, police said. No injuries were reported in the crash but police say the thieves tried to run away on foot before they were caught in nearby Oak Park.

Beaver Township Police say early Tuesday morning they attempted to pull over a auto with a male driver.

A Chicago police spokesperson said detectives were investigating whether the two were involved in a series of robberies and carjackings.

Authorities said they believed the incidents were related and could be connected to even more carjackings that took place in recent weeks.

The suspects were described as 5-foot-6 to 6-foot-1 and about 150 to 170 pounds. One man is between 18 and 20 years old and the other 30 to 35.

"Be smart, lock your auto doors, be aware of your surroundings", he said.
