Two ride share drivers tased and carjacked within an hour of each other on Northwest and West sides

Two ride share drivers were tased and carjacked within an hour of each other Monday night, one in Logan Square and the other in East Garfield Park about four miles away, according to Chicago Police.

Both drivers declined to go to a hospital, police said. No one was in custody.

The first attack occurred around 10 p.m. in the 2900 Block of North Sawyer Avenue, police said. The driver had picked up two passengers and one of them pulled out a Taser and used it on the driver several times.

The driver, 55, stopped and got out, and the carjackers sped south on Sawyer in the driver’s black Toyota Highlander.

The second attack happened around 11:15 p.m. in the 3500 block of West Ohio Street, police said. Again, the driver was carrying two passengers when one of them used a Taser on the driver, hitting him in the back of the neck.

The driver got out and the carjackers drove west on Ohio in the driver’s gray Toyota Camry, police said.
