Libertyville police responded about 11:20 PM Sunday October 18, 2020 to a vehicular hijacking at Jewel-Osco, 1300 South Milwaukee Avenue Libertyville, IL. Police received a report that two armed offenders were involved in a vehicular hijacking of a silver and black 2003 Mercedes XL.
UPDATE: Libertyville police confirmed today that two male subjects exited a black Volkswagen and approached their victim. One of the subjects brandished a handgun and demanded the victim’s car keys and cell phone. The victim provided his car keys and cell phone, but then one of the offenders struck the victim in the head. Both offenders then fled the scene — one drove away with the victim’s silver Mercedes SL500, and the other offender drove away in the black Volkswagen. The victim was treated by Libertyville firefighter/paramedics at the scene, and was released without transportation to the hospital.
The hood, roof and trunk are black on the victim’s vehicle; and the vehicle is silver on the sides.
The offenders were described as both wearing masks. One was wearing a black sweatshirt. One or both were armed with a handgun.
The suspects arrived in the area in a black Jetta with tinted windows. The suspects were last seen eastbound on Red Top Drive from Milwaukee Avenue.
