A food delivery man was robbed at knifepoint after being lured to a Fort Greene address on March 14, police said.

The 21-year-old victim reported to police that he was delivering Thai food to an address on Oxford Walk at 9:20 p.m. when he was approached by a man who took out money to pay for the food. During the exchange, a second man came behind him holding a knife.

The first suspect took the money back from the victim while the second man took the bag of food before they both fled.

Investigating officers found that the number used to call in the March 14 delivery was also used in a previous robbery that occurred at the same address of Feb. 16. The investigation is ongoing.

Robberies are down slightly year-to-date in Fort Greene’s 88th Precinct, according to Police Department data. As of March 17, when the most recent data is available, there were 21 reported robberies so far this year — down from the 23 reported during the same time in 2023.
