A Lindenhurst man was carjacked at gunpoint in the 1100 block of South Harvey Avenue at 9:20 p.m. on Jan. 2, according to Oak Park police.

The police report, which was made public at 2:19 p.m. on Jan. 4, notes that the victim was driving his 2013 black Ford Mustang, when a gray Hyundai Elantra pulled in front of his vehicle.

Two men exited the Hyundai and one displayed a silver handgun and ordered the man to exit the vehicle. The victim complied and the two carjackers entered the Mustang and fled northbound on Harvey Avenue.

Oak Park Police Commander Roger Grivetti said in a phone interview that the carjackers abandoned the Hyundai, which had been stolen in Chicago.

Both offenders were described as black, in their early 20s, about 6-foot tall, and wearing all black clothing and black ski masks. The gunman was described as having curly hair.

The estimated loss is $15,000.
