The NYPD is searching for two men who stole a delivery man's e-bike—along with his food delivery order—in Brooklyn last month.
The incident took place at around 2:45 p.m. on March 28th, in Bay Ridge. According to the NYPD, the suspects approached the 55-year-old delivery man, who was outside 115 89th Street, and said that they had placed the order. Police say one of the suspects took the food order and said that they weren't going to pay, while the other mounted the victim's electric bicycle. The first suspect also told the delivery man that he had a weapon in his pants pocket, according to investigators.
Video shows the two men both fleeing on the bike—but then falling when they try to maneuver onto the street. Police say they kept fleeing west on 89th Street.
The first suspect is described as a man in his 20s, last seen wearing a green hooded sweater, gray sweatpants and black sneakers, while the second is described as also being in his 20s and last seen wearing a dark colored baseball cap, a blue hooded sweater, a blue hooded jacket, black sweatpants and black sneakers.
