Oak Park police are searching for four teenagers who carjacked a Lou Malnati's delivery driver at gunpoint on Friday evening in the 1000 block of Highland Avenue.
Sergeant Michael Lepczynski said in an email response to questions that at 9:18 p.m. the victim was sitting in his black 2006 Chevy Impala when an armed teenager male approached the driver side window of the vehicle and demanded that he get out.
When the victim exited the vehicle, a second teenager displayed a handgun and went through the victim's pockets. The second offender then entered the driver's seat of the vehicle.
Two other males entered the back seat of the Impala. The teenagers then fled southbound on Highland and then eastbound on Fillmore.
Lepczynski said the victim was not harmed in the incident. Oak Park police do not currently have anyone in custody.
The driver of the vehicle could not immediately be reached for comment.
"The safety of our employees and our customers is our highest priority," Lou Malnati's spokeswoman Meggie Lindberg said in a written statement. "The police are investigating an incident that occurred Friday evening involving one of our employees. The employee was unharmed in the incident."
