Man pistol-whipped after Porsche carjacking in North Park

CHICAGO - A man was hit in the head with a pistol last night after he was forced out of his Porsche on the city's northwest side, authorities said.



Police say a 27-year-old man was getting out of his tan Porsche around 10:17 p.m. last night, in the 3200 block of W. Foster Avenue in the North Park neighborhood on the city's northwest side, when he was approached by two unidentified male offenders who were both armed with hand guns.

The offenders demanded the victim to hand over everything and the 27-year-old victim complied, giving the offenders all he had in his pockets - his cellphone and cash.

One of the offenders then reportedly struck the victim in the head with his pistol before the two offenders got in the man's car and fled the scene in the Porsche.

The victim was transported to Swedish Hospital where he is listed in good condition.

There is no one in custody and Area Five detectives are investigating.
