CHICAGO — A 61-year-old woman was pulled from her car during a carjacking early Tuesday in Lakeview, police said.

At 2:30 a.m., the woman stopped her car in the 3700 block of North Broadway when a man walked up to her car door, opened it and demanded she give him the car, police said. The man pulled the woman out of the car, got in and drove off.

Officers responding to the carjacker saw the car, but the man tried to drive away. He hit a light pole in the 3000 block of North Clark Street, police said.

The man was taken into custody and charges were pending. He was in Illinois Masonic Hospital in good condition.

The woman refused medical attention, police said.
