TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Authorities are searching for two armed robbery, carjacking and kidnapping suspects.

Pima County Sheriff's spokesperson Deputy Courtney Rodriguez described it as a bold crime committed in broad daylight.

On November 29, at 3 p.m. court records state three men walked into the Circle K store in the 4000 block of West Valencia, where the three threatened to kill the clerks and walked out with bottles of alcohol.

In the parking lot, sheriff's officials say the men approached a woman who was pumping gas, and carjacked her.  Authorities say the men forced the woman to drive her car for a mile and a half, then they dropped her off on the side of the road, and took off in her vehicle.

Deputies later found the vehicle dumped in a wash.

Shortly after the crime deputies arrested 17-year-old Christian Gastelum.  He was identified as a suspect in the carjacking.

Tonight, they have released the names and pictures of the two other men they believe were involved in this crime.  Sheriff's officials are looking for 16-year-old Israel Godoy and 17-year-old Enrique Durazo.

Sheriff's officials described Godoy as Native American, around 5'8" tall, weighs about 180 pounds, has a scar on his left hand and has black hair and brown eyes. Durazo is Hispanic, about 5'11" tall, around 175 pounds, has a tattoo of "AZ" on his left hand and "Durazo" on his back, and has brown hair and brown eyes, according to a news release. He might also have gauges in his ears.

Sheriff's officials said they are known to use public transportation, and could be house-hopping and staying with friends in the area.

Anyone with information on the suspects' location is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
