The victim advised police that she was delivering pizzas to an address on Summerdale, when she slowed down to look for the exact numbers. The victim said two Hispanic males approached the passenger side of her vehicle, and the “taller” suspect opened the front passenger door. The victim advised the suspect put a handgun to her back, and told her to get out and leave the keys in the ignition. The victim got out of her vehicle, and the taller suspect got in the driver’s seat, while the shorter suspect got in the passenger seat. The vehicle left EB on Summerdale, and the victim called 911 to report the incident.
The suspects are described as follows:

They crashed on Ridge between Halsted and Belmont
Just before midnight police were chasing a carjacking suspect. The information came across the un-encrypted airwaves of the county. Also via a few RS fans who witnessed the chase. Details are very minimal right now, due to the Rockford Police being encrypted.
But there was a carjacking. The suspect is a Hispanic male. The police were chasing the suspect in the area of Halsted and Ridge. A fan said the vehicle has a pizza delivery sign on top
Note: So we assume from this information, a robbery/carjacking happened to a pizza delivery driver in Rockford and police are now chasing the suspect.
Update from RS fan: Several officers searching the area of Randolf and Pheasant Run. Near Riverside/Rockton (SE from there) Police K-9 out tracking. Another fan saying Halsted and Huffman area (Same general area)
