Two women carjacked in Newport News

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WVEC) -- There were terrifying moments for two women after they were carjacked at a Newport News drug store.

Investigators say on the afternoon of January 2, the female suspect asked the victims for directions outside the Medicap Pharmacy on J. Clyde Morris Boulevard. Police say she then forced them to drive her to the MI Rancho restaurant nearby, where a man got in the car.

Police say that the two suspects had ordered and eaten food and alcohol at the restaurant and then tried to pay with a credit card, which was declined.  The pair claimed they would go get the money and return, but instead were seen getting into the vehicle which was occupied by the two victims, and left.

The suspects eventually let the victims go, but not before demanding their wallets, cash, and cell phones.

If you recognize the woman or know anything about this incident call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
