One person is in custody after someone with a gun told a 20-year-old woman to get out of her SUV, then took off with it Wednesday night in the Near North neighborhood, according to Chicago police.

Around 8:30 p.m., two males wearing all black walked up to the woman inside her 2011 tan Honda CR in the 300 block of West Walton Street, police said. One showed that he had a black handgun, and they told the woman to get out of the SUV. They got into the SUV then drove away.

Later, the Honda CR was spotted in Chicago police’s Englewood district in the 7100 block of South Walcott Avenue in the West Englewood neighborhood, police said. Officers stopped the vehicle and took one person into custody.

No injures were reported, police said. The attack is under investigation.
