Police from the 108th Precinct are looking for two men who stole an expensive scooter from a Woodside delivery worker on Wednesday, July 14.

The two men were sharing an e-scooter as they approached the 41-year-old delivery man in front of a restaurant at 62-01 Woodside Ave. around 6:30 p.m.

The man who took the Yamaha scooter was allegedly wearing all black clothing with a hood, and the second suspect was wearing a light blue hoodie and shorts.
