Carjacking Suspects Arrested

Knoxville (WVLT) - Two carjacking suspects, who were traveling with an infant have been arrested.

Police say a citizen saw the car, called 911 and followed it until police could catch up.

Police arrested the couple about 6:30 this morning at Oldham Avenue and Elm Street.

Police say just after 2:00 this morning, the car-jacking victim picked up the woman at a Pilot on Merchants Drive and took her to a hotel room at the America's Best Value Inn.

Once they got into the room, a man attacked the victim and the two got their two month old infant and took off in the victim's car.

We are told that the infant is safe and is being checked out at Children's Hospital.
