Two people were carjacked at gunpoint after trying to break up a robbery in the Crocker Amazon Playground on Wednesday night, police Officer Albie Esparza said.

The two victims, a 32-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man, were in the playground parking lot at South Hill Boulevard and Geneva Avenue sitting in their car just before 9 p.m. when two men in their 20s involved in a struggle with another man bumped into the vehicle. The two men were attempting rob the other man, Esparza said.

The woman inside the car got out of the drivers side and told the men to stop, Esparza said, and one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and got into the drivers side of the car. At that point, the male victim jumped out of the passenger side and the second suspect got in. The two men then fled the scene in the victims' blue 4-door Toyota Prius, which also contained the victims' cash and cellphone. The attempted robbery victim fled after the suspects' attention went toward the car, Esparza said.

No arrests have been made and the car has not been recovered.

The suspects were described by the victims as two men, both about 5-foot-10 and weighing 160 pounds, Esparza said. The suspect with the gun was reportedly wearing a blue puffy jacket with a hood, dark pants, white hand wraps. The other suspect wore a gray hooded sweatshirt and dark pants, Esparza said.
