EAST HARLEM — Police are looking for a boy who was videotaped pushing a delivery man to the ground while trying to steal his food, according to the NYPD.
The video, which has been viewed more than half a million times on World Star Hip Hop, shows a group of adults telling the young man to attack and rob the delivery man as he comes out of 445 East 120th St. in the Wagner Houses.
The group laughs as the boy shoves the delivery man into the ground. Some say, “hit him again,” as the victim tries to leave.
The boy then tried to take one of the man’s bags of food, which rips. After a short struggle, the delivery man fights back. That’s when adults step in to stop the fight.
WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
The video, titled “NYC Teen Gets What's Coming to Him When He Bullies A Chinese Delivery Man!,” was uploaded Sunday. The same video appeared on YouTube the same day under the title, “Black Kid Tries to Rob a Chinese Delivery Man.”
Detectives believe that the boy in the video may go by the nickname “Scooter,” a police source said.
The NYPD was not immediately able to provide a date of the incident.
