A quartet of rapscallions stole food from a delivery guy on Summit Street on Nov. 20 — and threatened him with a gun when he gave chase, according to police.
The victim was waiting for his customer on the sidewalk near Henry Street at 8:30 pm when four men ran up, grabbed the goods he was delivering off his bike, and fled up Summit Street towards Smith Street.
The delivery dude gave chase, but he knew it was time to call it quits when he found himself staring down the barrel of a gun, and the thieves got away with the booty.
