Suspects Sought in Frankfort Carjacking, Armed Robberies


Police in south suburban Frankfort have released photos of two men who are suspected in a crime spree along LaGrange Road early Saturday morning, including kidnapping a woman and forcing her to make purchases, officials said.

According to Frankfort police, a female victim was forced to withdraw cash at approximately 5:50 a.m. Saturday at a Chase ATM in the 20800 block of South La Grange Road.

The suspects then kidnapped the victim in her own car, forcing her to withdraw cash or either spend money at various locations, police said. Frankfort’s Police Chief estimated that approximately $8,000 was taken. 

Police also believe the suspects, or people working with them, are responsible for a separate armed robbery that occurred hours earlier the same morning at a Shell/Circle K gas station on LaGrange Road.
