CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — Police in Camden are investigating two armed carjackings that have occurred in the city in the past few days.

The first carjacking happened between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Sunday morning in the 2600 block of Mount Ephraim Avenue.

According to investigators, a driver parked his car on the side of the road. Police say two black males, one brandishing a black handgun, approached the car and ordered the driver to exit the vehicle.

The suspects got into the car and drove away toward Ferry Avenue. The car is described as a silver, two-door 2000 Honda Accord, license plate number: Y26-AYG.

The second carjacking happened at about 1 a.m. Tuesday near the corner of Mount Ephraim Avenue and Walnut Street.

A female told police she was in her parked minivan with a male passenger when two black males, one brandishing a black handgun, entered the vehicle, assaulted the male and female, forced them out of the vehicle and then fled the scene in the minivan.

The vehicle is described as a red, three-door 2000 Dodge Caravan, license plate number: U38-EBF.

Anyone with information on the carjackings is urged to call the Camden County Police Department tip line at 856-757-7042.
