CHICAGO — A 14-year-old boy has been charged with carjacking a Whitney Young High School teacher last week, police said.

On May 21, the boy went up to a 30-year-old woman — who is a teacher at the high school — while in a school parking lot and took her car and purse at gunpoint, police said.

The woman was not injured.

Later that day, officers and FBI agents found the woman’s stolen car and saw a 20-year-old man driving it, police said. Nicholas Williams was arrested and charged with possessing a stolen car.

The 14-year-old boy was arrested Thursday night in the 2100 block of West Adams Street after officers chased him, police said.

The boy was charged with two counts of aggravated vehicular hijacking with a weapon. He was scheduled to appear in Juvenile Court on Saturday.

Police said an investigation showed the boy also took part in an armed robbery that happened 12:55 p.m. May 18 in the first block of North Paulina Street.
