HARLEM — A food deliveryman was robbed and assaulted while attempting to deliver food to the Wagner Houses, police said.

The 22-year-old man was delivering food to the eighth floor of the NYCHA complex at 2370 First Avenue on Sept. 15 at around 7:40 p.m. when three suspects assaulted and robbed him, police said.

The attackers included a man and woman and an unidentified suspect, police said.

As the man entered the building, the woman told the victim, “Give me the money,” police said.

Then the man told the victim, “Cash money.”

The man then forcibly removed $300 in cash from the victim and his cell phone from the victim’s back pocket, police said.

The suspects then fled on foot, police said.

The man was described as in his late 20s, 5-foot-7 and 170 pounds wearing camouflage pants and black Crocs. The woman was described as in her early 20s, 5-foot-2, 90 pounds and wearing black pants and a black hat.  

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's CrimeStoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
