SAN DIEGO -- Two Marines told police that they stopped a potential carjacker on Sunday.

The Marines said that they were coming out of a Best Buy in the Mira Mesa area of San Diego when they saw a man armed with a knife trying to pull a woman and her child out of a car.

Calvin Hunt and Dwayne Colins said they tackled the man and held him down until officers arrived on the scene. They said their sense of duty led them to action.

"Just defending the innocent, basically," said Hunt.

"That's what we're here to do, so that's what we did: Protect and serve," Collins added.

Police have not confirmed the men's report, nor have they identified the suspect.
