Police are searching for three men who ambushed a food deliveryman and stole his scooter outside a Forest Hills apartment building on Christmas Day.
The robbery happened at around 10:45 p.m. on Dec. 25, when the 40-year-old victim was delivering food to the building at 66-20 108th St.
The deliveryman was let into the building lobby by the unknown individual who placed the order, but he was soon attacked by two other men wearing masks.
The masked men forcefully took the victim’s keys from him and fled with his red 2009 Yamaha scooter.
The men pushed the scooter southbound on 66th Avenue, according to police.
The suspects are described as Hispanic and between 18 and 20 years old.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
Disgusting behavior, and on Christmas Day to top it off. I hope these kids get what they deserve! Why they were not busy with family on that day particularly is just surprising. Whether you celebrate or not, not much is open and it tends to be a day of togetherness. I hope the delivery man gets an even better scooter back and didn’t suffer much trauma from the event and wish him all good things for 2019.
