Cops are hunting the thief who ripped a parcel from the hands of a deliveryman in Park Slope on Jan. 30.

The crook approached a driver with the United Parcel Service as he attempted to make a delivery on First Street near Seventh Avenue at 11:30 am, claiming he was a resident of the brownstone and asking for the package, cops said.

However, instead of handing over the parcel, the delivery guy demanded some ID, before turning to ring the doorbell, only for the thief reach over his shoulder, nab the package, and then hightail it.

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.nypdcrimestoppers.com, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
