The NYPD is looking for two young men wanted for allegedly attacking a restaurant deliveryman in Bushwick last month and then stealing his phone.
On April 25 at about 10 p.m. the suspects — described to be between 18 and 25 years old — approached the 37-year-old victim who was in the process of making a delivery at 1318 Halsey St., according to police.
The suspects punched the victim, who then ran away and dropped his cellphone on the ground in the process, cops said. One of the suspects picked up the phone and the two then ran away from the scene.
Police describe the first suspect to be a black man who was last seen wearing a light colored hooded sweater and light colored sweatpants. The second man is said to be Hispanic and was last wearing a dark colored hooded sweater and dark colored sweatpants.
Authorities have released surveillance video of the two men running away from the scene.
