Two armed carjackings were carried out less than an hour apart early Monday morning in Jersey City, police say.

In the first incident, police responded to Audubon Avenue at 3:15 a.m. on the report of a robbery and met a 21-year-old man whose 2012 BMW x5 had been stolen by two men with guns, a police report indicates.

The man told police he was parked at the corner of West Side and Audubon avenues when a white Dodge Caravan pulled up behind his vehicle and two men wearing white tank tops and black bandannas over their faces got out, cops say.

The victim told police the men approached the driver's side of his vehicle, opened the door and pulled him out. Both men showed dark-colored Glock handguns with "possible extended magazines," the report states.

After pulling the victim out of his SUV, one of the carjackers went into the man's pocket and stole his wallet. He then took off in the victim's vehicle and fled north on West Side Avenue, as the white van followed behind, police say.

In addition to the vehicle and wallet, the robbers got away with the victim's Samsung Galaxy s8 cellphone, an iPhone 6s Plus, and an iPad Mini. The three items, and the wallet, are estimated to be worth more than $2,300, the report states.

About 45 minutes later police responded to a Bayview Avenue address on the report of an armed robbery. When they arrived, police were met by a 24-year-old woman who had been a passenger in a Lyft vehicle that had just been carjacked, the report states.

The woman told police as she got into the car -- an Audi Q7 -- a man approached the vehicle and demanded that she and the owner get out. The car's driver, a 35-year-old Bronx man, told police that a man got out of a white SUV and demanded that he get out of the vehicle, the report states.

The carjacker was described as being 5-foot-5, wearing a white shirt and gray hoodie. The driver also told police the robber brandished a black handgun and chambered one round into the barrel, according to the report.

Both the white SUV and the stolen Audi fled east on Bayview Avenue and then north on Ocean Avenue, the report states.

The police report also states that the carjackers got away with the woman's LG cellphone, valued at $180.

Neither police report indicated whether the two carjackings are related.

Police say the incidents took place approximately .8 miles apart.
