A male juvenile was arrested by Forest Park police near Desplaines Avenue and the Eisenhower Expressway shortly after committing a carjacking at about 3 p.m. at 1030 Lake St. in Oak Park on April 1.
Oak Park Police Commander Roger Grivetti said in a telephone interview that the juvenile pushed past the owner of the vehicle who had stepped out of the vehicle and drove off.
No one was injured in the incident and no weapon was used, Grivetti said.
According to a Forest Park police report that the carjacker fled the vehicle on foot near I-290 and the Forest Home Cemetery and was seen crossing from the north to the south side of Roosevelt Road and enter Aperion Care Forest Park, a retirement facility at 8200 Roosevelt Road.
Police entered the building and a receptionist told them the man had requested a key to the bathroom. The carjacker was not found in the bathroom but was seen exiting the west side of the building.
He was later located running in the Waldheim Cemetery, south of Roosevelt and west of Desplaines, and placed under arrest.
