WEST HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — A police deliveryman was attacked while bringing a pie to customers on Long Island, police said.

The unidentified Domino’s Pizza worker was delivering food about 11:20 p.m. Thursday to a home  on Woodfield Avenue in West Hempstead, according to the Nassau County Police Department.

The victim met up with a man and a woman and handed over the pie. That’s when a third person approached the deliveryman and punched him in the face, police said.

One of the assailants then pushed the victim to the ground and all three ran away, heading west on Pinebrook Avenue with the pizza.

Vague descriptions of the assailants were available Friday morning.

One is described as a black male between 18 and 20 years old who stands about 5 feet 9 inches tall and was wearing a black shirt, black shorts and carrying a black knapsack, police said.

Another is described as a black male between 20 and 22 years old, about 6 feet tall.

The third attacker is described as a black female between 18 and 20 years old, about 5 feet 2 inches tall, wearing a white shirt and black shorts.

Anyone with information in the case is urged to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
