The vehicle that was carjacked is a silver Hyundai Sonata.

The victim said one male drove off in her vehicle while the other drove away in a separate silver vehicle. Police were able to catch the two men responsible for the robbery early Sunday morning.

"Safety is our top priority and we take any incident like this very seriously."
