Police are searching for three men who robbed a 57-year-old woman at gunpoint in Rego Park Saturday night.
The suspects allegedly approached the woman near Eliot Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard around 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 16 while she was getting out of her car, police say.
One of the men threatened her with a gun and forced her to hand over her purse which contained a cell phone, cash, and her identification card.
The men then fled on foot toward Woodhaven Boulevard, according to police, leaving the victim uninjured.
All three suspects are described as being black, in their late teens or early twenties, and wearing dark clothing.
