    A woman was beaten during an overnight carjacking in Oak Park, police said.

    The incident happened just past 1 a.m. in the 1800 block of Bayview Heights Drive.

    According to investigators, a woman in her 40s had met a man in Tina’s Bar earlier in the night. The man asked the woman for a ride home, and she agreed.

    During the ride, police say the man made unwanted physical advances toward the woman, but she refused his advances.

    That’s when the man punched the woman and forced her out of her vehicle.

    After pulling her out of her car, police say the suspect drove away. The victim sustained minor injuries.

    Police say the stolen vehicle is a black, four-door 2012 Chrysler.

    The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s to early 30s, 5-foot-11, with a thin build. He was wearing a gray shirt and jeans at the time of the carjacking.

    The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to contact police.
