MIAMI - Two suspects in connection with a woman's carjacking in Miami are in custody, police said.

The black Infiniti QX70 was recovered Tuesday afternoon near Northwest 68th Street and Northwest 17th Avenue.

A 36-year-old woman told Local 10 News that she had just pulled into her cousin's driveway near Northwest 57th Street and Northwest 13th Avenue about 10 a.m. when she saw three teenagers in the rearview mirror. She said one of them bent down like he had dropped something.

"Before I knew it, he was at the car, like, he had this big ol' gun at my face," she said. "I turned. There was another one who had a big ol' gun in my face, too."

She said the teens demanded her car and purse.

Witnesses said the armed thieves were wearing backpacks.

"He didn't even know how to drive. He couldn't drive," the woman said. "It took him at least two minutes to pull off."

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
