Cops are looking for three suspects who robbed two delivery drivers in Bedford-Stuyvesant. 

The first incident occurred on Feb. 20, when a 33-year-old man was transporting food to a customer on his moped near Stuyvesant Avenue and Van Buren Street at around 7 p.m., when one suspect pushed the victim off his two-wheeled transport, before hopping on the vehicle and driving off — all while two others awaited nearby. 

On March 6, three individuals, who cops believe are the same suspects, approached another moped-using delivery driver at 157 Stuyvesant Ave. at around 11:20 a.m. One of the perps knocked the 47-year-old man off the vehicle, before punching him in the head and hopping on the moped. Again, two others were waiting a short distance away, possibly acting as a lookout.

Neither victim required hospitalization as a result of the robberies, but both lost their modes of transportation.  

Cops described two of the perps as males with light complexions, while another was described as a male with a heavy build. 

Anyone with information in regard 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).
