BUSHWICK—A group of nearly two dozens teens brutally attacked a Chinese food delivery man and stole his takeout order near the Bushwick Houses last week, according to officers from the 90th precinct.

The 37-year-old worker was beaten unconscious and sent to Woodhull Hospital, according to an FDNY spokesman, but his current condition is unknown.

The delivery man had been taking an order to the housing project on Flushing Avenue—the same place where Officer Kevin Brennan was recently shot—around 8:40 p.m. on March 16.

But the teens jumped him a few blocks before his destination, punching him in the face and hitting him on Debevoise and Humboldt streets.

It is not clear how they knew he would be there.

Cops said that the punks grabbed his bag of food, worth no more than $40, and fled.

The victim began bleeding and he was rushed to Woodhull Hospital for treatment.

No arrests have been made, said Deputy Inspector Michael Kemper of the 90th Precinct.
