Police say a suspect, believed to be a teenager, ordered a victim out of their vehicle at gunpoint and stole their car in Waukegan Saturday evening.

The Waukegan Police Department responded around 5:35 p.m. Saturday to the 900 block of Massena Avenue for a report of an armed carjacking.

Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Joe Florip confirmed a suspect, who was armed with a black and gray handgun, carjacked a victim for their 2010 Mazada 3 sedan.

The male black suspect was believed to be approximately 17 years old, wearing a navy blue zip-up hoodie and black pants.

The suspect was last seen in the gray Mazada driving northbound from the scene towards Ridgeland Avenue after ordering the victim out of their car at gunpoint.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

An alert was issued across the Illinois State Police Emergency Radio Network (ISPERN) to area police departments to be on the lookout for the vehicle.

Florip said the stolen vehicle was later stopped by police in River Hills, Wisconsin, which is a town north of Milwaukee.

River Hills officers arrested a subject who was driving the stolen Mazda during a traffic stop around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

No charges have been filed yet, Florip said, adding that the case remains open and active.
