Libertyville police are searching for two men after an armed carjacking late Sunday night.

Officers responded at 11:29 p.m. Sunday to the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue and Red Top Drive, according to a news release from Libertyville police. The two carjackers got out of a black Volkswagen, and one demanded the victim's car keys and phone at gunpoint, authorities said. After the victim complied, one of the carjackers hit him in the head.


One of the men fled in the black Volkswagen, and the other drove away in the victim's car -- a silver Mercedes SL500 with a black hood, roof and trunk.

The victim was treated by paramedics at the scene.

Anyone with information about the case should call Libertyville (847) 362-8310.
