Two armed men pulled a man out of his vehicle at gunpoint early Monday morning just feet away from a Woodside elementary school.

The driver, 45, was sitting in a Toyota Corolla outside 57-14 Woodside Ave. — situated across the street from St. Sebastian’s Catholic Elementary School — when the suspects approached the vehicle at around 4 a.m., police said.

One of the suspects pulled out a gun and demanded the driver’s wallet. The victim handed over his wallet before the suspect dragged him out of the car and then got into the vehicle.

The perpetrator then sped off in the gray-colored 2004 Toyota, which has a New York license plate of KRC1625.

The other suspect, however, got into a different vehicle to flee the scene. Police said it was a white-colored sedan.

The victim’s wallet contained $100 cash as well as a debit and credit card. The victim’s phone was also in the carjacked vehicle.

There were no injuries reported and no arrests have been made, police said.

Brooklyn man charged with manslaughter, DWI, for Astoria collision that killed his wife: DA

New details have emerged in the case against a Brooklyn man who allegedly crashed into several cars in Astoria last week while driving drunk, and then drove off in the wrecked vehicle to a residential block in Maspeth four miles away with a gravely injured passenger. The passenger turned out to be his wife, who later died, and the boozed driver told investigators that the couple was being followed when the collision occurred, according to the criminal complaint.

Rey Perez, 27, of Caton Avenue in Flatbush, was arraigned on Friday in Queens Criminal Court on charges of manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter and other crimes for speeding through stop signs last Thursday morning, crashing into another vehicle and two parked cars, before speeding from the scene to Maspeth where he sought help for his wife, 29-year-old Bridget Enriquez, who later succumbed to her injuries.
