Police are searching for two suspects after a carjacking in the northeast part of the valley Monday evening.

The carjacking happened in the 7000 block of Burcot Avenue, near Lake Mead Boulevard and Los Feliz Street, around 5:40 p.m. Police said the suspects took the car and then crashed it near the 3000 block of American Fork Place, near Hollywood Boulevard and Alto Avenue.

The driver lost control, hitting the curb and making its way through the driveway and then hitting two cars in the second driveway.

The suspects fled after the crash. A neighbor said one of the suspects was banging on the security door.

Detectives spent more than 4 hours on scene talking to witnesses and the reported victims.

Eventually, they put one of the reported victims in handcuffs and took him away from the scene. However, police did not say why he was taken away and said they're still looking for suspects.

No injuries were reported during the carjacking.
