OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Deputies in Kalamazoo County are working to track down two suspects wanted in connection to a carjacking, according to the sheriff's office.

It happened just before 11 p.m. Saturday near West KL Avenue and US-131 in Oshtemo Township.

Deputies say the victim, a 32-year-old man, had his car, phone and wallet stolen at gunpoint by two suspects.

The victim was told to drive his car a few blocks from the original location before he was robbed, according to deputies.

Deputies say the two suspects were African-American, about 5'8, and 150 lbs. wearing black sweatshirts.

It is not clear if this carjacking is connected to another which happened Sunday near the Concord Apartments on Redcoat Lane in Oshtemo Township.

Anyone who information is asked to call the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office at 269-383-8748 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.
