ST. GEORGE, Staten Island — Police on Monday said they were still looking for three suspects after a pizza delivery man was attacked and robbed by a group outside a Staten Island apartment building back in February.

According to police, it happened back on Feb. 10 when the delivery man arrived to the building on Jersey Street, in the St. George neighborhood, just after 6 p.m.

The NYPD said surveillance video shows five male suspects surround the 62-year-old delivery worker before knocking him to the ground, punching him in the head and appearing to kick him in the head, as well.

The group then swiped $100 in cash and the delivery man’s pizza before running off, police said.

The victim suffered cuts to his hands, as well as pain and swelling to his head, and was treated at the scene by EMS, authorities said.

Police in early March arrested an 18-year-old in the brutal robbery, days after a 16-year-old suspect was charged with robbery, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and more, according to the NYPD.
