MOTT HAVEN, the Bronx — Two men approached a delivery driver Dec. 7 and took off with his motorized scooter and other items, police said Tuesday.

At about 10:27 a.m., one of the men — who was riding a bike — approached the 46-year-old victim, who was sitting at a red light. Police said a second man approached on foot, punching the delivery driver multiple times in the face.

When the victim fell off of his scooter, the second suspect took the vehicle and fled. The first suspect followed on his bike, police said.
