Last week at a South Loop gas station, a man charged with carjacking a woman was denied bail on Sunday.

According to a Fox32 report, Cook County Associate Judge Sophia Atcherson ordered Giovanni A. Holman, 22, held with no bail as he faces felony counts of vehicular hijacking and vehicular invasion.

According to Cook County prosecutors and Chicago Police, on Friday at about 9:15 p.m. in the 1000 block of South Desplaines, Holman walked up to a 2018 Cadillac stopped at a gas station, pushed a woman out of the driver’s seat and drove off.

Prosecutors said officers spotted the Cadillac early Saturday and asked OnStar operators to remotely disable the SUV.
