Officials are searching for two suspects after a carjacking in Grand Canyon Village on Monday.

At about 3:30 p.m., Grand Canyon National Park's emergency dispatch center received calls about an accident near the South Rim of the canyon. People offered to help the two men in the vehicle, but the pair refused the help and left on foot carrying large backpacks, said Grand Canyon officials.

At 7:15 p.m. the dispatch center received a call about a carjacking. Two males allegedly approached a driver and passenger and took the vehicle at gunpoint.
