A man terrorized shoppers in Chicago’s biggest shopping mall, Friday, by smashing his SUV through an outside entrance and chasing shoppers around as he drove through its main concourse.
The man plowed his SUV through an entrance by the Sears outlet at Woodfield Mall, and then drove around inside, smashing kiosks, chasing customers, and causing thousands of dollars in damage.
Woodfield is a suburban city just west of Chicago’s O’Hare Airport and about 30 miles west of downtown Chicago.
A number of videos of the incident made by shocked shoppers were posted to social media.
