16-year-old boy robbed at gunpoint

The NYPD is looking for three suspects who they say robbed a teenager at gunpoint in the middle of the afternoon. 



The robbery, which was caught on camera, happened inside the lobby of an apartment building on Melrose Avenue at around 3 p.m. on March 9. 



According to police, the 16-year-old victim was waiting for an elevator when the three men approached. One pulled out a gun, and two of the suspects appear to be holding canes of some sort. 



The teen complied with the men, handing over his cellphone and $100, cops say. He was not hurt. 



Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS
