Robbers trick delivery men with bogus orders

63rd Precinct

Marine Park—Mill Basin—Flatlands—Bergen Beach

Delivery con

Snakes attacked and robbed two different delivery men called to the same E. 61st Street home two days apart.

A Chinese food delivery man told police he went to deliver an order to the home between Avenues U and T around 6 pm on Dec. 28 when three assailants pounced. One grabbed from him behind and punched him the face, while the other two jerks grabbed the food and his phone dropped in the scuffle before all three fled, cops said.

Two goons then lured a pizza delivery man to the address on Dec. 31.

The victim told police he was dropping off the pie around 5:15 pm when two nogoodniks attacked him. One brute repeatedly hit him in his eye, causing an injury, as the other grabbed the pizza out of his hand. The two then fled, according to police.

With friends like these

Cops arrested a 15-year-old girl for robbing another teen at an Avenue J park on Dec. 30.

The 14-year-old victim told police that she was walking through the green space near E. 38th Street around 4:25 pm when a group of brazen thieves brandishing a gun snatched her necklace.

The teen identified one of her attackers as a friend, and cops arrested the 15 year old at 4:55 pm, according to the report.
