Police on Long Island are searching for two men who allegedly pulled a gun on a woman and stole her 2020 Mercedes Benz.

The incident took place in Wantagh around 9 p.m., Thursday, May 5. 

According to detectives, a 44-year-old woman parked her 2020 Mercedes-Benz on Ridgewood Drive; exited her vehicle, and proceeded to the passenger side to remove personal belongings.

One of the men then pulled out a black handgun and demanded the key. The victim complied and the two men entered the vehicle and fled southbound on Wantagh Avenue, police said.
