Cops seek suspects in Chinese food delivery robberies
Three men are being sought in connection with the armed robberies of two Chinese food deliverymen last week.
In each of the incidents, the suspects called in a delivery order from a Chinese restaurant, police said. When the delivery arrived, two suspects pulled out a firearm, demanded money and then fled in a black SUV, which was driven by the third suspect.
The trio first struck about 10:30 p.m. on Dec. 23, when they robbed a 35-year-old deliveryman at 2202 E. 28th St. in Sheepshead Bay. They then robbed a 43-year-old victim on the night of Dec. 26 at the intersection of Ford Avenue and Avenue U, police said.
Surveillance footage captured two of the suspects before the first incident.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). All calls are confidential.
