NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Police released surveillance footage on Monday looking to identify two men wanted for attacking and robbing a food-delivery worker in Manhattan over the weekend.

According to police, just after 8 p.m. on Sunday, a 21-year-old delivery man was parking his electric bike in front of a Taco Bell on First Avenue, near East 19th Street in Gramercy Park when two unknown men approached the victim, and demanded his property.

The suspects are seen in the video riding up on another e-bike.

The men then begin to punch the victim in the head and body and forcibly removed the victim's delivery bike before fleeing in an unknown direction.

EMS responded and transported the victim to Bellevue hospital in stable condition. The extent of his injuries were not clear.

The victim's bike had an estimated value of $2,300, officials said.

Authorities described the thieves as men between 20 and 30 years old.

An investigation is ongoing.

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