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.

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.
