Brooklyn crew suspected of robbing food delivery workers

Cops are searching for a crew of men with an appetite for robbing food delivery workers in Brooklyn, police said Monday.

The gang is believed to have strong-armed at least six delivery men in Flatbush since Oct. 7, jumping the workers once they’ve entered an apartment building and then robbing them of their wallets, cash and cell phones, cops said. In some cases, even the food was swiped.

In the first instance, the delivery person was attacked by three men inside an apartment building on New York Avenue near Tilden Avenue and Beverly Road just after 9:30 p.m., cops said.

The crew allegedly stole the 20-year-old man’s wallet, cellphone and the food he was delivering, worth a total of about $2,000.

The second attack came on Oct. 12 at around 10:30 p.m. a few blocks away inside a building on Cortelyou Road near East 23rd Street, according to police.

A 37-year-old delivery man was punched in the face and torso after entering the apartment building and robbed of about $1,300 and his cell phone.

The brutes, who attack the delivery people in groups of two, three or four, have stolen over $3,500 to date, according to cops.
