A 16-year-old girl in Chicago, Illinois, has been charged with carjacking four separate drivers at gunpoint earlier this year, police announced on Thursday, adding that on another occasion, the juvenile offender even made off with a vehicle while a 7-year-old girl was still inside.
In a press release , the Chicago Police Department reported that officers arrested the juvenile Wednesday on the Lower West Side and charged her with four felony counts of aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm and one count of felony restraint.
Police listed the dates and locations of the crimes as well as the ages and genders of the victims.
In one incident that took place March 24, the girl allegedly carjacked a 60-year-old woman. The three other incidents took place within the span of four days between Feb. 18 and 21 and involved three male victims between the ages of 27 and 37 years old.
The defendant’s identity has not been released due to her young age. Police said she was taken into custody without incident and is now awaiting a court date.
WMAQ-TV reported that the unlawful restraint occurred on Feb. 27 in Bridgeport when the suspect hopped in a running vehicle and drove off with a 7-year-old girl still sitting in the back seat. Citing police, the outlet said the suspect abandoned the vehicle a short time later on Archer Ave. with the child inside and unharmed.
The alarming news comes as juvenile violent crime continues to soar in Democratic-controlled cities across the country. Armed carjackings, in particular, have been on the rise in places like Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
Local Chicago station WBBM-TV reported last October that during the first several months of 2021, more than half of carjacking arrests in the city were of individuals 17 years old or younger. Moreover, police struggled mightily […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
