NYPD: 2 wanted for knifepoint robbery of delivery man in Soundview
A man was targeted and robbed while making a delivery in Soundview last month.
Police are looking to question two men they say stripped a delivery man of everything he had on him while he was making a delivery near Elder Avenue and 172nd Street.
Surveillance video released by the NYPD captured the 43-year-old victim on his e-bike when a man approaches him with a knife in his hand around 12:30 a.m.
Seconds later the victim starts walking down the block when another man starts running toward him. The victim tells police the duo teamed up on him, grabbed him by the neck and threatened him with a knife right to his throat. The video shows the pair going through his pockets.
News 12 is told the men wanted for questioning got away with the victim’s money, cellphone and his e-bike.
The victim was not physically hurt.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
