ABC7 Eyewitness News was first on the scene when a would-be carjacker was taken down by the person who was nearly one of his victims in the city’s Streeterville neighborhood.

A couple was unloading luggage from their car Friday night February 2, 2018 just after 7:00 p.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel at Ohio and Fairbanks when an offender jumped in their car. The male victim was able to pull the carjacker offender out of the car and pin him to the ground.

ABC 7 Chicago’ crew with Eric Horng was half a block away when the crime occurred and caught much of the incident on video.

Accomplices in a black SUV attempted to break up the citizen’s arrest, but the accomplices fled the scene when their attempts failed. Police took one offender away in handcuffs — a male/black suspect, 15 years-old, wearing a dark jacket, tan pants and sneakers.

Chicago Fire Department Engine 98’s crew and Ambulance 1’s crew were also on the scene.
