An 81-Year-Old Veteran Was Assaulted And Robbed Of His Car By Teenagers While He Was Delivering Pizza In The Crime-Ridden City Of Chicago

An 81-year-old veteran was assaulted and robbed while delivering pizzas in Chicago’s Northwest Side last week.

Ernie Aimone, a veteran of the Vietnam War and a longtime pizza delivery man, recounted the incident to ABC7, explaining that he was attacked while crossing the street after completing a delivery in the Jefferson Park neighborhood.

According to Aimone, the assailants demanded his car keys and then struck him from behind, causing him to fall to the ground. In fear for his life, Aimone remained on the ground while the suspects fled the scene in his car, a 2015 Hyundai Sante Fe.

Chicago police responded to the carjacking and entered the stolen vehicle’s plate number into the system. Several hours later, state police spotted the car on an expressway and attempted to pull it over, but the carjacker refused to stop.

A pursuit ensued, ending with the stolen vehicle crashing and sustaining significant damage. While one teen suspect was apprehended, authorities are still searching for possible accomplices.

Despite the ordeal, Aimone expressed his determination to return to work once he has a usable car again, emphasizing his responsibility to his children. His daughter, Robyn Aimone, expressed gratitude that the assault did not result in a tragedy and acknowledged the outpouring of support from the community.

Aimone, who has been delivering pizzas for Joe’s on Higgins for the past four decades, is deeply cherished by coworkers and customers alike. Recognizing his loyalty and service, the Gladstone Park Chamber of Commerce initiated a GoFundMe campaign to assist him in repairing his car or acquiring a new one.

The fundraising effort has garnered significant support, with donations pouring in from individuals eager to assist Aimone during his time of need.
