MIAMI (CBSMiami) - Police detained two people in connection with a woman who was carjacked while leaving a friend's Miami home on Tuesday morning.

Miami Police said the woman, who was driving a rental car, was stopped by three armed juveniles at NW 12th Avenue and 57th Street.

Pointing their weapons at her, they demanded that she get out of her car -a rental Nissan Infiniti.

"Next thing I know, he has a big old gun in my face. I turned and another had a big old gun in my face. To me, he said, 'Open the car. Open the door. Give (tears) give me the code to my phone.' I gave him everything. I go out and walked away from the car," said the victim.

The trio then drove off with the car.

She told police she wasn't hurt in the carjacking.

At last check, police said they had detained two juvenile males in the case after finding the woman's car near NW 17th Avenue and 68 Terrace Tuesday evening.

"I am 36 years old. I never had a gun in my face, in my life. Gun to my face, me, in my face. What was I going to do?" asked the victim.

According to witness Nicki Horne, who is also the victims cousin, out of the heavily armed gang of three, none of them could drive.

"I saw 'em pull off and they did not know how to drive...they were kids, wearing hoods on their heads...all had a gun," said Horne.  These kids are really out of hand for this to happen at ten in the morning."

After learning that two people had been detained, Horne expressed her approval.

"I prayed for it and I am glad because it just was not right," she said.

As for the victim, CBS4's Hank Tester caught up with her briefly outside police headquarters.

"I could not pick them out," she said, referring to a lineup of potential suspects. "I am too tired."

The suspects in this case were wearing hoodies at the time of the carjacking.
