Posted

Police are trying to locate two males they say jumped a deliveryman on Sedgwick Avenue last month.

The 40-year-old was delivering food to a home on Sedgwick south of West 229th Street at 6:30 on Aug. 11 when he was confronted by four males who punched and kicked him. One of the men stole his food delivery, and all four ran.

The deliveryman suffered pain and bruising, according to police, but refused medical attention at the scene.

Anyone with information that could help identify these two males can call the New York Police Department's CrimeStoppers Hotline at (800) 577-8477. They also can submit tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers webiste at NYPDCrimeStoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

All calls, police say, are strictly confidential.
