Alberta RCMP are on the hunt for two suspects and a vehicle after a carjacking at gunpoint on Saturday.

Police responded to Crossfield just before noon after a 16-year-old boy reported his car stolen.

He was approached by two males, one of which pulled out a handgun, RCMP said. The suspects took the boy’s phone and vehicle, and he was not hurt, police said.

His vehicle is a dark grey Subaru Impreza with Alberta licence plate GEJ 133, officers said.

If you encounter this vehicle, RCMP urge that you don’t approach it and instead call your local police or 911.
