CHICAGO (CBS) — An 80-year-old man was carjacked and beaten by four women whom he gave a ride Wednesday evening in the Englewood neighborhood.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, the man offered a ride to the four young women, but after they were in his car, they turned on him.

Around 6:50 p.m. in the 6900 block of South Parnell Avenue the women beat the man with the cane he uses to walk, and took his wallet and cell phone, police said. The man ended up getting out his 1999 Toyota Camry, and the women drove off in the car.

The man was slightly hurt in the attack and was treated at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center.

Police say they have not found the car, nor the women carjackers.
