A woman sleeping in her vehicle on Kokanee Way in Kamloops avoided a carjacking after a struggle early this morning.

Two men approached the woman's vehicle at around 2:25 a.m. today, Jan. 11, where one woke her up saying he was taking her car, according to a Kamloops RCMP press release.

"A struggle occurred in which she was assaulted before breaking free and driving away," reads the RCMP release.

The suspects reportedly left in an older black, tan or gold Chrysler K-car with a flat back window.

One suspect was described to be in his 20s, 6' tall with pockmarked skin and no facial hair. The man was wearing a black hat with a flat brim and white front with diagonal stripes and a red emblem. The woman provided no description of the second suspect.

Police are asking the public with any information to call 250-828-3000 and reference number 21-1121.
