At 10:30 p.m. on Friday, June 7, a 52-year-old man was riding an electric bike to make a delivery, heading eastbound on Warren Street. Just then, a green Ford F250 pickup pulled up next to him, slowly pushing him to the curb. The pickup driver opened the driver's side door, forcing the deliveryman to stop. Three men then got out of the truck. The driver grabbed the deliveryman and held him against the seat of the truck while the other two men got out, took his bike, and threw it into the back of the pickup. The other two men got back into the truck while the driver let the deliveryman go and jumped back into the truck himself. The truck took off, heading up Church Street. The deliveryman said that the truck had New York vanity plates, but he could not remember what they said. The boosted bike was a Series Brand Five electric valued at $800.
