Cops are looking for four teenagers who violently robbed a food delivery worker in Washington Heights last week.
According to police at 7:30 p.m. on April 14 a 22-year-old man entered 12 Dongan Place to make a food delivery. At this time, four unknown men approached the victim and demanded money.
The suspects proceeded to push the victim against the wall and began to punch and kick him throughout his body. One suspect pulled out a black handgun while the others forcibly took $300 in cash from the victim’s pockets.
