Undaunted, the group stole a handbag from a parked car, then forced a woman out of her 2011 Hyundai Sonata and drove it back to the Bronx, prosecutors said.

The violent spree finally ended Feb. 4 when Henry double-parked the Sonata in front of Family Court in the Bronx and went inside with Willis, prosecutors said.

The car had triggered a license plate reader, and patrolling officers tried to box it in as they waited for the duo to come back out.

A cab blocked the officers’ way, though, so Officer Vanessa Rodriguez of the 44th Precinct walked up to the Sonata, where she found Henry behind the wheel, prosecutors said.

The teenage carjacker pulled into reverse and pinned Rodriguez between the Sonata and a parked car, prosecutors said. Rodriguez fired three shots, wounding Henry.

Henry was freed on bail on the original charges on Feb. 13.
