Two suspects were arrested on suspicion of carjacking two cars and crashing them both in Contra Costa County Tuesday night, according to police. A male and female assaulted two people at a restaurant parking lot in Antioch before stealing the victim’s vehicle at about 8:40 p.m., according to Antioch police.
The victims suffered injuries not considered life threatening, police said. About an hour later, police were notified that a vehicle matching the description of the one stolen earlier was involved in a solo collision on Contra Loma Boulevard.
