Two people impersonating police officers handcuffed two victims and held them at gunpoint in a weekend carjacking in Burbank.

Police responded to the 3000 block of North Naomi Street Saturday and found two carjacking victims in handcuffs. The victims said they had been carjacked by two people at gunpoint. 

Security camera video from a nearby home shows a car with flashing lights pull up behind the victims' car. A man can be heard saying, "Stop the car! Stop the car!"

The carjackers were wearing shirts with the word “POLICE” on the front. They barked a series of commands and told the occupants to get out of the car and put their hands up.

One of the men told the pair he was going to look inside their vehicle. Moments later, he took off in the vehicle and his accomplice sped away in the other car.

No injuries were reported. No one has been arrested.

The two carjackers were in a gray sedan. A details description of the attackers was not immediately available.
