Police are investigating an alleged carjacking that took place in the Oak Park neighborhood Friday afternoon.

According to authorities, the carjacking occurred at 69th Street and Livingston Street at about 3:30 p.m.

The 23-year-old female victim told police she was delivering medicinal marijuana in the Mid-City area in her white 1998 Chevy Malibu.

She claimed two Hispanic male suspects – one armed with a pellet gun – approached her car from both sides. A suspect on the driver’s side then grabbed her by the head and tried to pull her out of the car, police said.

The suspect on the passenger’s side shot the victim several times with the pellet gun and at least one pellet struck her in the face, according to authorities.

The suspects eventually pulled her out of the vehicle. She ran away and the two men took off in her car.

Police described the suspects as being 25-30 years old. One was 6-feet-tall, 250-pounds and was wearing a black hoodie and shorts. The other man was wearing a brown hoodie, blue shorts and white knee-high socks with slippers.

The victim refused treatment for the injury to her face.

Police said at first, the victim claimed to know the suspects, but later said she did not recognize them. She wouldn’t tell police how much marijuana was in her stolen vehicle.

Police are investigating. Check back for updates on this story.
