3 Vehicles Stolen in Attack on Illinois Luxury Car Delivery Driver

March 1, 2021

Four men attacked a luxury car delivery driver in suburban Chicago and took off with three high-end vehicles, authorities said.

The attack, which was captured on video, took place early in the morning on Feb. 25 at Jidd Motors in Des Plaines, police said in a release.

The driver was repeatedly punched and kicked as the assailants ordered him to hand over keys, police said. He suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries to his wrist and leg — surveillance video shows him hopping away from the attackers as they make off with the cars.

The driver has had to have two surgeries, dealership owner Adam Jidd told news outlets. He said two BMWs and an Alfa Romeo were stolen.

“They’re really quick,” Jidd told WLS-TV of the suspects. “Professional. They’re all masked up. They have gloves on them. They know what they’re doing.”

Surveillance video also showed the suspects inside another Jidd Motors location nearby about 20 minutes before the delivery driver was attacked. Jidd said they tried to take some cars from inside a warehouse but were unsuccessful.

Jidd said he would hire armed security to work at both locations. No arrests have been announced.
