A 36-year-old woman and her 16-year-old son were car-jacked in Rockford early Friday morning.
Police say the pair were approached in their car, which was stopped at the intersection of S. Court and Salter Ave. at around 3:30am. The victims told police that three black males and one white male pulled a gun and demanded they get out of their car. The thieves then got in and drove off.
The gunmen fled in a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix, along with a cell phone and other personal items. All four were described as being in their 20’s wearing dark clothing.
Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crimestoppers.
