Would-be carjacker trapped in garage after woman closed door

When Andre Bacon repeatedly demanded a woman give him the keys to her car in the Belmont Cragin neighbourhood of Chicago, police say she did so.

And then she closed the door to the garage where the car was parked, trapping Bacon inside until officers could come and arrest him.

Police say Bacon approached his victim on Saturday evening. He repeatedly demanded she give him the keys to her car. She handed them over, then closed the garage door, ran away and called police.

Officers arrived and opened the garage door to find Bacon sitting in the driver's seat with the keys in the ignition. Bacon was then taken into custody. Now Bacon, 21, of Chicago, has been charged with attempted vehicular hijacking and theft and is being held in lieu of $75,000 bail.
