BUCKTOWN —  A 24-year-old woman warming up her SUV was carjacked at gunpoint by two men early Sunday evening in Bucktown, police said.

A neighbor of the victim, who posted about the incident on a Bucktown neighborhood Facebook page, said the carjacking of the 2016 black Ford Escape happened about 6:20 p.m. in the 1700 block of North Wolcott Avenue under a "very bright" lamppost.

Officer Nicole Trainor, a Chicago Police spokeswoman, confirmed the incident.

"[The victim] told police that she was warming up her car when two unknown male black offenders approached her vehicle displaying handguns. The victim fled from the vehicle, leaving behind personal belongings," Trainor said.

The carjackers, who drove westbound on Wabansia Avenue, were described as 20- to 25-year-olds, one wearing a red hoodie, the other wearing a black jacket, Trainor said.

The carjacking victim refused medical attention. Police have been unable to find her car, Trainor said.
