EAST NEW YORK -

Three teens are accused of attempting to rob a livery driver at gunpoint, causing him to crash his car, police say.

A 14-year-old boy has already been arrested in connection to the incident, however, police say they are still looking for two more suspects, a male and a female.

The incident happened on Sept. 6, around 5:30 a.m.

Police say the livery driver picked the teens up outside of Brookdale Hospital and began driving them to Flatlands Avenue and Elton Street when one of them pulled out a gun and demanded cash.

The driver refused and struggled with the teens in the back seat before crashing the car into two parked cars.

The teens fled from the car.

Police say the driver suffered a cut to his finger.
