Car thieves pull a man and woman out of a pickup truck near the Lincoln Park Zoo and briefly drive off in a vehicle with two children in the backseat

CHICAGO (CBS) — Two car thieves dragged a man and a woman out of an SUV outside the Lincoln Park Zoo Wednesday night, driving off with two small children in the back seat.

The 24-year-old woman and 26-year-old man were delivering a package near Dickens Avenue and Lincoln Park West when an unknown vehicle pulled up and two carjackers got out.

The robbers got the man and woman out of the truck, got in and drove away, with a 1-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy in the backseat.

The SUV was recovered with the children still inside, a few steps away on Stockton Drive, south of Dickens Avenue. No injuries were reported.

No one was in custody Wednesday night. Area Three detectives are investigating.
