Cops are hunting the gunmen who robbed a 26-year-old delivery man in Gowanus on July 2.
The victim told police two thieves waltzed up and stuck a gun in his face at 17th Street near Fourth Avenue at 10 p.m., one of them growling “give me your money,” before the pair nabbed $60 and his iPhone 6.
The thieves fled with their ill-gotten loot along 17th Street heading toward Park Slope, but police claim they found surveillance footage of the perps heading into the nearby Prospect Avenue subway station.
Investigators described their suspects as a 6-foot tall, 25-year-old man weighing about 150 pounds, and a 25-year-old man standing at 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing roughly 135 pounds.
Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdc
