CHICAGO (AP) — An 11-year-old boy has been charged in an armed carjacking last fall where he and other males allegedly stole an SUV at gunpoint from two Chicago women, police said.

The boy was arrested Wednesday and charged as a juvenile with vehicular hijacking and criminal trespass to property in the Nov. 19 carjacking.

He was identified as one of the people who took the SUV from two women, ages 57 and 36, in the Mount Greenwood neighborhood on Chicago’s southwest side, police said.

Investigators are still pursuing leads to find the others involved.

WLS-TV aired footage of the carjacking that was captured by a neighbor’s doorbell security camera. That footage shows what appears to be young males exiting a car and approaching the women just after they had pulled into a driveway in the SUV.

A short time later the suspects drive off with the SUV while also taking some of the women’s belongings.

Police said the 11-year-old suspect was also seen in a car that was reported stolen Nov. 13 in the city’s Marquette Park neighborhood.
