TURLOCK -- A 60-year-old woman working at a foster care facility was bound and assaulted by two juveniles who lived there before they took her car late Monday, police said.
The two suspects, 16 and 17 years old, were still at large Tuesday.
Police responded to the 1100 block of Tuolumne Road at 11:17 p.m. The woman was treated at a hospital for bruises, abrasions and a broken rib and was released from the hospital, Sgt. Nino Amirfar said.
The two suspects were acquaintances in Fresno County, where both lived with their respective families before being placed at the residential facility, Amirfar said.
The victim's vehicle is a 2003 black Chevrolet Malibu with license plate 5CWX069. The vehicle has tinted back and side windows.
The suspects' names are being withheld because they are juveniles.
The two suspects are wanted on suspicion of carjacking, felony battery (causing serious bodily injury) and false imprisonment, all felonies, Amirfar said.
