Car stolen with wife still inside, Uber driver says

CHICAGO -- An Uber driver from Chicago woke up without a car Monday morning, but he can be thankful that's all he lost.

Mohamed Habeeb left his wife in the back seat of his Toyota Camry as he ran into a store in the city's Rogers Park neighborhood around 10:15 a.m. Sunday. He said that's when a thief jumped in.

Habeeb said as the suspect threatened to killer her as he back out of the spot in the 2200-block of West Devon Avenue and took off. Eventually, she was able to jump out of the car. The thief kept going.

"So in three minutes time, I think, all of the sudden I am hearing my wife running into the grocery shop saying, 'Somebody carjacked our car!'" Mohamed Habeeb said.

Habeeb said he did not have GPS installed in his car.

Police confirm a beige sedan was stolen with someone still inside in the same location Sunday morning. The incident is under investigation.
