Loyola employee victim of carjacking near Lake Shore campus


A Loyola employee was the victim of a carjacking on the 6400 block of North Sheridan Road on February 18, according to a crime alert from Loyola campus security sent on February 18.

The employee’s vehicle was hijacked around 3:50 a.m. by two offenders, approximately one block from Loyola’s Lake Shore campus. The attackers came up behind the employee, displayed a handgun, beat him, then demanded the victim’s keys and personal effects, according to the crime alert.

The two unknown men took the employee’s belongings and then fled north in her vehicle, according to the Chicago Police Department (CPD).

The victim was transported to Saint-François hospital in good condition. No one is in custody, but Area Five detectives are investigating, the CPD said.

Resources are available for faculty and staff through Loyola’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP), said university spokeswoman Anna Shymanski Zach.

The program is free through Perspectives, Ltd. and is available to all Loyola employees and their families. The program offers one-on-one counseling, work-life services, as well as wellness and education materials and resources.
