Two 17-year-old boys and a 20-year-old from Long Island are under arrest, charged with arson for allegedly setting a car on fire with the driver inside.

The incident happened just after 5 p.m. on March 29 on Oyster Bay Road in Syosset.

Police say Brian Weiss, Jasheer Kareem and Sulaiman Wardak torched the car, causing more than $2,000 in damage.

They reportedly lit fire to the interior of the 2012 Hyundai Elantra, which was being driven by an 18-year-old male.
