Authorities have arrested a suspect who allegedly carjacked and injured a victim in the parking lot of the Lake Forest Oasis before leading state police on a pursuit on Interstate 94.

The Illinois State Police responded around 3:40 a.m. Thursday to the Lake Forest Oasis, 13783 East Oasis Service Rd in Lake Forest, for a report of a theft.

An attendant to the 7-Eleven store at the rest stop reported a male white stole cigarettes, according to state police.

Cameras captured the suspect walking around the parking lot attempting to open car doors, according to a 911 dispatcher.

While state troopers were still responding, it was learned that the suspect forcefully carjacked a driver who was pumping gasoline at the gas station near the 7-Eleven.

The suspect was identified as Robert J. Cattell, 52, of Lake Forest.

Surveillance video captured the incident and state police said Cattell attempted to flee the scene with the victim’s blue Hyundai Elantra.

He put the vehicle in reverse and struck the victim with the driver’s side door before breaking the gas pump hose, state police officials said.

A responding state trooper pulled up behind the victim’s vehicle to assist and Cattell continued to reverse, striking the front of the trooper’s squad car.

The state trooper involved, who was uninjured, reported there was damage to the Hyundai and the airbags deployed.

The suspect refused to stop and a police pursuit ensued on eastbound Interstate 94 from the Lake Forest Oasis.

The pursuit was discontinued after the stolen vehicle exited Interstate 94 at Cicero Avenue on the north side of Chicago.

The victim of the carjacking was transported by ambulance to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with non-life-threatening injuries.

State police agents located the stolen vehicle in Chicago where it had crashed.
