An elderly woman is recovering after she was carjacked by a couple of teens at a local Wal Mart.

The incident happened just after 7 p.m. Sunday.  Police say the woman was walking up to her car at the Flour Bluff Wal-Mart when two teenage boys told her she had a nail in her tire. When she went to look at her tires, the teens jumped in her car and drove away.

The 74-year-old woman was knocked to the ground during the incident while trying to honk her horn to get bystanders’ attention.

One of the juveniles was arrested, according to officers with the CCPD.
