Video Shows Teen Randomly Attack Harlem Delivery Man

Disturbing cellphone footage captures what appears to be a teenager randomly attack a food delivery man in East Harlem.

The video was reportedly taken at the Wagner Houses on East 120th Street and has been viewed more than 500,000 times since it was posted on the website on World Star Hip Hop. A manager at the restaurant where the man works said the deliveryman was attacked about three months ago. 

The footage shows the teenager push the man to the ground as he walks out of the housing project while other bystanders egg him on.

The suspect then tries to grab food from the man and rips his bags, the video shows.

The delivery man eventually fights back until the squabble is stopped by an older man.

Tynavhe Fitzpatrick said that she's seen the kids in the video before, adding that they crossed the line in the attack. 

"That's very disrespectful," she said. "They should have left him alone."

Police say they arrested a teen on robbery charges in connection with the attack.
