A suspect is in custody though formal charges are still pending.
A car was stolen at gunpoint around 10 p.m. Wednesday night in the parking lot near Kohl's, 1001 75th St., according to Woodridge police.
A man wearing a Halloween mask pointed a handgun at a woman seated inside a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am, according to a release. He ordered her out of the car at gunpoint, got in the car and drove away, police said.
A witness to the robbery followed the stolen car and informed police of its whereabouts, according to reports.
Police said they stopped the car near the Centerpointe Mall along Woodward Avenue and arrested a 31-year-old man from Coal City, who was still wearing the Halloween mask and had a loaded .45 caliber handgun in his possession.
The suspect remains in custody but formal charges are still pending by the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office, according to police.
