68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights


A maniac punched and robbed a mail carrier when he would not hand over a package on 72nd Street on March 31, authorities stated.

The delivery man told police he was dropping off a package between 12th and 13th avenues at around 1:40 pm when the parcel pincher approached him, claiming the delivery was his.

But when the carrier asked for some identification, the ruffian punched him in the face, grabbed the package, jumped into a green Bavarian Motor Works ride driven by an accomplice, and sped off. The civil servant sustained a cut to his right eye and right hand, but he declined medical treatment, police noted.

The man is described as standing 5-feet-8 and weighing 180 pounds. He sports a beard and was last seen wearing a gray jogging suit, according to law enforcement officials.
