CHICAGO — A Maserati that was stolen from Bears receiver Kevin White has been found, police said.
White's car was stolen from his girlfriend, who was targeted during a "bump-and-run" carjacking Thursday in the West Loop.
At 6:30 p.m., the woman was in the 400 block of North May Street when someone rear-ended her at a stop sign, police said.
The woman got out of the car to check for damage and two people got into the woman's car, a white Maserati, and drove away.
The woman was not injured during the robbery, police said.
“One of the guys looked towards the front of the car and then the other guy from the other car came out and jumped in the Maserati and that’s when she turned around, he took off,” a witness told CBS2.
The car was found Friday in the 3800 block of West 16th Street, about 4 ½ miles from where it had been stolen, police said. No one was in custody and an investigation was ongoing.
The area has seen a rash of "bump-and-run" robberies where someone rear-ends a victim's car and when, the victim gets out, a person gets into the car and drives away. Two similar attempted carjackings were reported in the West Loop and Little Italy recently.
Before that, there were two similar "bump-and-run" robberies on the Near West Side.
