YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - Two men are in custody after an alleged carjacking in Yuma that crossed the California border.

Yuma police say Michael John Kinale is being held on a $2 million cash-only bond after his initial court appearance while Douglas Hayes is being held on a $1 million cash-only bond.

Police say Kinale and Hayes approached a parked vehicle in Yuma about 1:30 a.m. Saturday and allegedly forced two people at gunpoint to drive to Winterhaven, California.

The two victims were released and notified the Imperial County Sheriff’s Office.

Kinale and Hayes fled in the vehicle which authorities pursued back into Yuma, where it crashed.

The men both are jailed on suspicion of armed robbery, aggravated assault, theft of a means of transportation, misconduct involving weapons and unlawful flight from law enforcement.
