EL CENTRO, CA.- Two men have been arrested in connection to a carjacking.
It happened Tuesday morning in the area of Imperial Avenue and Ocotillo Drive.

the stolen truck in the parking area.
Police say the person driving the truck was in one of the mobile homes. They say several men in the home were questioned. The victim was taken to the mobile home park, where she identified one of the men as the suspected carjacker.
