No one was injured in a carjacking that happened in Ville Platte last night, police say.

Chief Neil Lartigue said two men carjacked a Domino's delivery driver last night. The men were arrested today, just over the border in Texas.

Lartigue said the two suspects were picked up by Texas authorities because of the warrants out for them, and he plans to pick them up next week after the extradition process is complete.

The driver was not injured, he said.

"Everybody's OK," he said.
