Carjacking on Winthrop

Thanks to a reader for pointing out the following Lake Effect News story:

A 42-year-old woman found herself being carjacked as she pulled her 1997 Plymouth into her garage on the 5900 block of North Winthrop on Monday.

The victim told police she had just pulled her car around the alley and entered her garage around noon June 1, when she came face to face with a man identified as Bobby Blake, 31, of the 14400 block of South Marshfield in Dixmore.

As she went to get something out of her trunk, she turned around and allegedly saw Black pointing a silver handgun at her. Blake said, “Don’t scream, I just want your money,” the victim told police. After she told Blake that her purse was in the car, he reached into the Plymouth and took her purse, the police report said.

The victim handed him $40. Blake took her car keys and told her that she could find her car “around the corner” according to the police report. He told her to turn around and count to 50. The victim said she heard the car start and leave the garage. She ran into her house and called 911.” Continue reading.
