Prosecutors say a New York City dad and another man robbed homes while his girlfriend drove the getaway minivan with the kids in tow.

The three pleaded not guilty Wednesday to burglary and weapon charges.

The Queens district attorney's office says a witness saw the blue minivan outside his home Monday with a woman in the driver's seat and the two men going out his front door.

His sister's apartment in the home had been broken into. A handheld game and $1,500 were stolen.

A police officer saw the same minivan later and arrested the three after seeing the men break into another apartment, prosecutors say.

A 5-month-old and a 4-year-old were in the minivan with the woman at the time.
