CHICAGO (CBS) – Two men have been charged with hijacking an elderly couple at gunpoint at a gas station in the western suburbs of Willowbrook in July.

DuPage County prosecutors said at around 2:45 p.m. on July 15, an elderly couple pulled up to the Citgo gas station at 6900 Kingery Highway in Willowbrook. The woman entered the store and when she got back to the car Davis and Sanders got out of a stolen Dodge Durango and walked towards the opposite sides of the victims’ 2021 BMW 840i.

Sanders is accused of pointing a gun at the woman and pushing her away from the car, while Davis pointed a gun at the man’s head and ordered him out of the car.

Davis and Sanders then stole the victims’ cell phones, cash, wallet and purse, before getting into their BMWs and fleeing the scene. Someone else who was in the Durango followed them, prosecutors said.

Police then identified Davis and Sanders as the car thieves and learned in August that they had been arrested for armed robbery and other crimes in West Lafayette, Indiana. In September, a DuPage County judge issued an arrest warrant for the two men.

Prosecutors have said that once their cases are closed in Indiana, they will be extradited to DuPage County to face carjacking charges.

“The allegations that these two men threatened their victims at gunpoint in the middle of the afternoon at a busy gas station are glaring and will have the full force and effect of the law,” DuPage County Attorney Robert Berlin said in a statement. .
