Two teenagers are still being held in the Oklahoma County juvenile dentention center on Tuesday after being accused of carjacking a Woodward taxi driver at gunpoint, police said.

The woman cab driver called police about 5 a.m. on Friday, saying a teenage girl held a gun to her head while a teenage boy held a knife to her 12-year-old daughter's throat before stealing the taxi. Neither the driver or the daughter were hurt, authorities said.

Oklahoma City police sergeant Gary Knight says the teens were stopped later that day, in Oklahoma City.

"Woodward advised us they had been searching for a cab driver that had been carjakced earlier in the night. Turns out both suspects had robbed a female cab driver and her daughter at gunpoint and knifepoint in Woodward," Knight said.

He said the teens are both 15-years-old and are being held in an Oklahoma County juvenile detention center, without bond. Charges are expected to be filed in both Oklahoma and Woodward counties.
