NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A deliveryman was trying to bring a woman some mozzarella sticks, but he didn't make it.

He was robbed outside of 130 Barrow Street. The suspects slashed his forehead, and took off with his phone, his cash, and the food.

The delivery guy was treated at Bellevue.

His boss at Pizza Italia on West 17th Street, said it's gotten dangerous for delivery guys who don't even carry that much money.

“You can’t make a delivery anymore. It’s crazy,” Anthony Sorisi said.  “He didn’t have a lot of money. They took his cell phone and his wallet.”

Neighbors told PIX-11 they were shocked to hear about the violent robbery.

“It’s obviously disconcerting because this is one of the safer parts of the city,” Mike Rutstein said. “Anytime you hear anything like this it’s obviously a concern.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS, text tips to 274637 or go online to www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
