Imagine living an area where vicious muggings were so common that passersby simply watch with mild disinterest, or maybe nonchalantly bounce their basketball. That’s what happened in the lobby of an apartment complex in the Bronx earlier this month.
The 21-year-old deliveryman had barely set foot in the building on Olinville Avenue, when a man and a woman unleashed their vicious attack. He was punched, kicked, and thrown to the ground, before his coat was torn off him so the assailant could rifle through his pockets.
Luckily, the victim only received minor injuries, but he lost his iPhone and some cash. The man was described as thin, and was wearing a blue hoodie and camouflage trousers. The female suspect was wearing a gray hoodie, and navy blue trousers.
At this time, it is unknown if he is the victim of a random attack, or if the couple ordered a delivery with the intention to attack the deliveryman.
