Don’t Carjack in a Garage

An unnamed woman in Chicago became the victim of a carjacking Saturday when a man approached her and demanded the keys to her 2012 Honda MDX. The victim complied and then fled, but since the car was still in her garage, she closed the garage door as soon as she got outside! The carjacker was trapped until police arrived.

Andre Bacon, 21, of the 11300 block of South Harvard Avenue, faces felony attempted vehicle hijacking and theft charges in connection to the botched carjacking Saturday in the Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side, according to court records.

Bacon is being held on $75,000 bail. -via Arbroath

It would be pretty hard to lock someone in a garage. I would presume that there would be at least one man door. The overhead door has a manual release cable.

I'm going to suggest that this story is a hoax.
