Cook County Judge And 3-Year-Old Son Carjacked In Humboldt Park

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A Cook County judge and her 3-year-old son were carjacked at gunpoint late Thursday night in Humboldt Park.

Police said, around 11:30 p.m. Thursday, a 52-year-old woman was pulling into a garage of a home in the 1500 block of North Campbell Avenue, with her 3-year-old son in the back seat, when two men approached.

According to an internal CPD report obtained by CBS 2's Brad Edwards, the woman, who is a Cook County judge, was forced out of her car at gunpoint, and robbed of her purse and phone.

She was able to remove her 3-year-old son from the back seat before the carjackers took off in her 2018 Subaru Crosstek, which was last seen nearly 4 miles away, near Jackson and Hamlin boulevards.

Neither the judge nor her son were injured.

No one was in custody Friday afternoon.

Area Five detectives were investigating.
