Police in suburban Woodridge were searching for several gunmen who carjacked a vehicle and held four people at gunpoint outside a movie theater late Friday night, according to law enforcement.
At around 11:56 p.m., officers with the Woodridge Police Department responded to the Cinemark Seven Bridges theater, 6500 Illinois Route 53, regarding an armed vehicular hijacking, police said in a news release. The victims told police that they were approached by four armed men in the parking lot, who demanded phones, cash and the keys to a Black Chrysler 300. The suspects got away in the vehicle, which bears Arizona license late 9TA86E, authorities said.
Hours after the carjacking, a stolen Hummer, which police believe the suspects used before stealing the Chrysler, was located nearby, authorities said. The Hummer had been reported stolen from Schaumburg.
