UPDATE by Freeport PD:

On September 24th, 2023 at approximately 5:00 pm, Freeport Police officers responded to the 800 block of W. Cottonwood Street in reference to a vehicle that had just been stolen. When officers arrived, they spoke to the victim who stated he was inside his 2021 Dodge Durango with his child when he was approached by two males who were wearing masks, gloves and were armed with pistols. The males ordered the victim out of his vehicle and demanded that he hand them the keys to the vehicle. The male was able to remove his child from the vehicle and did as he was ordered by the suspects. One of the suspect males entered the victim’s vehicle and drove away.
The investigating officers quickly broadcasted the stolen vehicle description over ISPERN. The stolen vehicle was seen by a Trooper with the Illinois State Police outside of the City of Freeport who then engaged in a pursuit of the stolen vehicle. The driver of the stolen vehicle tried to evade the Trooper as he pursued the stolen vehicle into the City of Rockford. The stolen vehicle eventually crashed, and the suspect then fled on foot. He was later located by the Rockford Police Department in the area of Horace Avenue and Green Street. A firearm was recovered from a satchel that was still inside of the stolen vehicle.
The arrestee is a 17-year-old male juvenile who resides in Rockford, Illinois. He was taken to a Rockford-area hospital where he was treated and then released to the custody of the Freeport Police Department. The juvenile has been charged with two counts of Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking and one count of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. He was later transported to the Kane County Juvenile Detention Center.
The Freeport Police Department would like to thank the Illinois State Police and the Rockford Police Department for their assistance with this investigation. The second suspect is still at large. He was described to be a black male in his late teens to early 20’s wearing black pants and a black shirt. Anyone who has information about the second suspect is asked to contact the Freeport Police Department at 815-235-8222 or submit an anonymous tip through the Stateline Area Crime Stoppers at 866-TIPSNOW or through texting at Tip411.
