BROOKLYN - Police are looking for three suspects who allegedly robbed an off-duty officer at gunpoint.

According to authorities, the victim was trying to warm up her car on East 99th Street, near Foster Avenue, Thursday morning when two men approached the vehicle. One of them put a gun to her head and forced her into the backseat.

Cops say she was able to make a run for it when the second suspect tried getting into the car and called for help, despite a third suspect trying to intervene.

The men escaped in a yellow taxi that was found on Newport Street in East New York with the officer's handbag inside.
