Cops are looking for a pair of perps they say robbed a food delivery man of his electric bike while he was working in Bay Ridge.
According to authorities, at around 2:45 p.m. on March 28, two men approached a 55-year-old delivery man who was making a delivery near 89th Street and Ridge Boulevard and told him they were the customers that ordered the food.
One of the perps allegedly grabbed the bag with the food inside and told the victim they weren’t going to pay for it. The second crook then hopped on the man’s bike while the other one told the delivery man they were going to take his ride. The first perp then simulated a weapon in his pants pocket, police said.
Both men then got on the bike and fled westbound on 89th Street.
The suspects were caught on camera taking the wheels on a joyride — and then wiping out — before getting away.
Police describe the first suspect as a Hispanic man in his twenties. He was last seen wearing a green hooded sweater, gray sweatpants and black sneakers. The second suspect is also said to be a Hispanic man in his twenties. He was last seen wearing a dark colored baseball cap, a blue hooded sweater, a blue hooded jacket, black sweatpants and black sneakers.
