Oak Park police have charged three Chicago men with an attempted carjacking that took place at the Shell gas station at 1 Harrison St. at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 27.

According to a police press release, the three men – Sharod Turner, 23, and Jamel Turner, 21, both of the 1100 block of South Mason Avenue, and Demetrius T. Haymon, 20, of the 5800 block of West Fulton Street – attempted to steal a woman's vehicle as she began to fill her tank at the pumps.

Oak Park police said in an earlier press release that the woman said she began to get gas when she saw one of the men enter her vehicle from the driver's side.

She confronted him and he implied he had a gun, police said. The man then fled the vehicle and ran northbound on Austin Boulevard. He was accompanied by two others.

Police stopped and arrested Jamel Turner and Haymon near the incident. They arrested Turner on Sunday morning near his Chicago home.

Police initially reported that they did not find a weapon on the day of the incident. There was no mention of a weapon in the most recent press release.

A bond hearing for all three men was scheduled for Monday, Jan 29, at the Maybrook courthouse.
