REDDING, Calif. -

The search is on for two carjacking suspects in Redding.   The robbery happened late Wednesday night near the Texaco station at Bechelli Lane and Bonneyview Road.

Police said two suspects flagged down the victim around 11 p.m. and asked to use his phone.  They pulled a gun and demanded the car.  They took off in the victim's black Honda, and a silver Nissan Sentra.

The suspects are described as two white men in their 20's, wearing metal militia hats with full-sleeve tattoos.  One had a white tank top, the other a black tank top.

They were last seen headed northbound on Interstate 5.
