FedEx delivery driver robbed at gunpoint

The 15-year-old jumped out and was arrested after a short foot chase, police said.

Police said a 46-year-old FedEx driver was making a delivery in the 7500 block of South Green Street, and was walking toward a home when two male suspects drove up in a auto around 9:15 a.m. Wednesday. In this second case, a 40-year-old female truck driver was held up by a man wearing a ski-mask and wielding a handgun while she was on a delivery in the 8000 block of South Saginaw Avenue around 11 a.m. The teenager got out of the auto with a gun, and made the woman hand over the keys to her truck.

He continued driving south on Wentworth but hit a fence and stopped, police said. He was taken into custody and charged with aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle and aggravated fleeing.

Last Friday, another FedEx driver was carjacked in Chicago's Fuller Park neighborhood. No one is in custody, according to police.

FedEx said Wednesday in a statement that the company was "grateful that no one was injured".

Police said they were searching for a second person in the auto. "While we continually evaluate and implement procedures that enhance our security systems, in order to ensure the integrity of our procedures, we will not disclose specific details about our security program". He took two packages from the truck before running east.
