TPD: Monday carjacking more kidnapping/assault after speaking with victim

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department is reporting that Monday's carjacking is more of an assault, kidnapping case after speaking with the female driver.

According to Sgt. Kim Bay spokeswoman with TPD the incident was not random, there was a man and woman in the car with the two male suspects originally. All were acquaintances and TPD is saying the situation was drug related.

One of the male suspects in the vehicle began to assault the man, who left the car and ran away.  According to TPD one of the two suspects then chases after the man, leaving the woman driving the car with the second male suspect.

The woman returned several hours later, to the scene where the police were, but before she arrived the second male suspect had left the vehicle. 

There is very little description of the two male suspects, as the man and woman are not cooperating with police. Though TPD is saying the two suspects are Hispanic males and are possibly from Mexico.
