THE BRONX - A restaurant deliveryman was robbed at gunpoint while working in the Bronx, police say.

The incident happened on Nov. 20 inside the vestibule of 3544 Dekalb Ave. near East 212th Street in Norwood around 1 a.m.

The 54-year-old restaurant worker was making a delivery to the building when he was forced inside at gunpoint by a suspect.

Once inside, police say the suspect demanded cash and got away with $60.

The incident comes just a week after a 53-year-old woman delivering Chinese food was punched in the face and robbed in the Bronx less than a mile away. The deliveryman was not injured. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
