NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Surveillance cameras in the Bronx caught a brutal assault and robbery of a delivery man by a violent group of attackers.

Police say the 36-year-old victim was making a delivery for Uber Eats when four men ambushed him and pushed the worker off his bike.

The group then punched the victim to the ground and allegedly threatened him with a knife before getting away with his electric bike and iPhone.

Police say the attack happened last month on Feb. 26 in the Mount Eden section near Edward L. Grant Highway.

Police believe the suspects are all in their late teens.

Another group of four suspects were caught on camera viciously attacking and robbing a man in Brooklyn on March 12. Surveillance video spotted the suspects as they beat the man unconscious before swarming the victim and taking his belongings.

The NYPD claims the city’s overall crime rate has dropped to record lows however, officials said they were shifting units to deal with a spike in violent crimes including murders and rapes. The department says many clusters of violence are driven by gang activity and gun violence.

    At least, DiBlasio has promised he’ll have good health care, that is based on his living.

  8. Paul Velte says:

    Power comes in groups, so naturally, where guns are outlawed, you see this sort of gang violence against individuals. Give the individual the means to defend himself, and this stuff would stop virtually overnight. A handgun is truly a great ‘equalizer.’ Suddenly mere numbers is not so relevant. I cannot believe you New Yorkers put up with this state of affairs.

    Police claim over all crime is down. My take, thugs are going after the low hanging fruit. Random crime seems to be on the rise. So comforting.
