Last week a Chinese deliveryman was shot five times by a perp looking for some free sesame chicken—and survived! On December 15, Jin Jin Chen, 22, was sent by his bosses at King Food Chinese on Graham Avenue to deliver three orders of sesame chicken, some roast pork and a bottle of Sprite to an apartment at the Bushwick Houses. But nobody answered the number he'd been told to call when he got there. That's when he was allegedly attacked by 17-year-old Victor Cubero.

According to the police, Cubero threatened Chen with a gun and demanded the food. Chen ignored him and went back to his scooter, at which point Cubero allegedly shot him five times, hitting him in the stomach and chest. Per the Post, "the gunman calmly walked away with the food order, while the hardworking delivery man crashed his scooter and lay bleeding on the street."

Chen was taken to Kings County Hospital where, after multiple surgeries, he is in stable condition and partially paralyzed. Late Tuesday night, police arrested Cubero in connection with the shooting and charged him with attempted murder, assault, robbery and weapons possession. The 5', 100 lb., Cubero reportedly has prior arrests for robbery, petit larceny and marijuana possession.

Crimes against Chinese food deliverymen are, sadly, not uncommon: They have been shot and killed for food and (very little) money, or they are victims for teens to callously beat, as was the case earlier this year.
