Terrifying footage shows the moment brazen thieves slammed an SUV into the sidewalk and stole $20,000 in cash from its driver at gunpoint on Manhattan’s Upper East Side — a bizarre heist that has police searching for the suspects, who are still free.

The dramatic scene shocked passers-by on Second Avenue between 91 and 92 streets around 4:40 p.m. Saturday when two cars in an apparent high-speed chase sped down the wrong side of the street into traffic.

The video clip, taken by a passerby, shows the car being driven by the victim, a silver Toyota Rav-4, speeding down the avenue at high speed before being passed by a black Mercedes-Benz driven by the attackers, the in which beats off-road vehicles.

Still stepping on the accelerator, the suspects continue to accelerate and ram the Toyota, causing it to spin while its driver continues to try to get away.

At this point, the Mercedes driver accelerates again and pushes the other car onto the sidewalk, where another chase ensued, with passers-by flocking to the crime scene flee and jump out of the way.

Both vehicles then move off the sidewalk into an adjacent bus lane, where the Mercedes gives chase again and rams the Toyota a second time, turning it 180 degrees again – this time forcing it to a halt, video shows.

A man armed with a pistol then exits the passenger side of the Mercedes, approaches the other vehicle and is seen banging the gun on the glass and threatening the driver – who police believe knew the attackers.

At that time, according to the police, the thief stole a stack of cash $20,000 before jumping back into the Mercedes and driving off. No injuries have been reported as a result of the incident – and the suspects are still at large as of Sunday morning.

“He has a gun! He has a gun!’ A scream from a bystander can be heard in the clip, which has been shared widely on social media since the brazen attack in broad daylight.

NYPD officials added that the armed robbers dropped off the battered Mercedes a few blocks from the scene, which officers quickly recovered. Photos show the damage to the hood from the repeated ramming.
