TRIBECA — A deliveryman had his $800 electric bike swiped in TriBeCa on Friday, after he was forced off his ride by three men in a pickup truck, police said.
The 52-year-old victim told officers he was riding down Warren Street about 10:30 p.m. when a dark green Ford F–250 pickup pulled up next to him and slowly pushed him to the curb.
The driver of the car then popped open his door, forcing the victim to stop. The driver and two other young men jumped out of the car, grabbed the man off of his red bike and held him against the pickup as they threw his electric wheels into the back of their truck, according to police reports.
The three thieves then quickly sped off, cops said.
Police had not made any arrests as of Tuesday and said the investigation was ongoing.
