PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A manhunt is underway for two suspects who allegedly carjacked an SUV in Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. when police say two men carjacked a 2008 Lincoln Navigator at gunpoint in the area of Kensington and Allegheny Avenues in the Kensington section of the city.

Police say the victim then jumped into another vehicle and started chasing the two suspects.

Police say they were initially told a 10-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl were inside an SUV when it was stolen but police have been unable to confirm those reports. The children have since been found safe with another family member.

Authorities are currently searching for two men. One male suspect is described as wearing a black hat with a black shirt. The second suspect is described as a man with a beard who was last seen wearing a white shirt.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS.
