Food delivery workers have e-bikes stolen at gunpoint

Police in New York say a pair of armed robbers are holding up food delivery workers and stealing their electric bikes.

There have been at least eight incidents in Manhattan this month.

The incidents are similar.  The employee parks his electric bike to make a delivery.  The two men approach him.  One shows a handgun and then grab or forcibly take away the bike.

The incidents have taken place since Oct. 2, 2020, in Midtown and the Upper East Side.

In one incident the robbers only got the man's phone.  In another, the man didn't give up his bike and the robbers ran away empty-handed.  The bikes were worth $1,800 to $2,300.
None of the victims was hurt in the incidents.
