Burbank police Monday sought public help to find two men who carjacked a vehicle at gunpoint while impersonating police officers over the weekend.

The crime was reported about 1:50 a.m. Saturday in the 3000 block of North Naomi Street, said Burbank police Sgt. Emil Brimway.

“Officers arrived on scene and encountered two victims who were handcuffed,” Brimway said in a statement.

“During their investigation, officers learned the victims had been carjacked at gunpoint by two suspects impersonating police officers,” Brimway said. “The suspects were wearing shirts with the word `POLICE’ written on the front.”

The victims were not injured, Brimway said. The suspects were described as males with shaved heads. They were in a gray car. No other details were released.

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call police at 818-238-3210.
