A man carjacked in Lompoc this week says he is both happy and thankful to have his truck back.

The Lompoc Police Department says the truck was found undamaged Wednesday night within the Lompoc city limits, although the exact location is not being disclosed.

An investigation was launched after police say two people tried to stab Andres Tapia, 70, with a screwdriver Wednesday morning before throwing him to the ground and taking off in his burgundy 2006 Nissan Frontier.

Tapia says nothing was missing from the truck and it was not damaged. He says he is thankful to God to be alive after the ordeal and adds that he will be more vigilant now when he is out. 

Police say no arrests have been made.
