Chicago police: Would-be car thief stuck in garage

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police say a man who allegedly tried to steal a woman’s car got a big surprise when she handed over the keys — then shut him inside her garage.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports (http://tinyurl.com/pjhnrm7) that 21-year-old Andre Bacon is charged with attempted vehicular hijacking and theft and was ordered held Sunday in lieu of $75,000 bail.

Police say Bacon approached the woman Saturday and repeatedly demanded that she give him the keys to her 2012 Acura MDX, which was parked in her garage.

She did, but then closed the door behind her and called police. Police reports say Bacon was trapped inside until officers arrested him around 7:30 p.m.

He allegedly was sitting in the driver’s seat with the keys in the ignition when police got there.
