A scooter-riding menace is robbing Carroll Gardens delivery men at knifepoint, police said Tuesday.

On March 9, a delivery man brought an order to 139 Luquer St. When he arrived around 11:30 p.m., a man approached him with a knife drawn and robbed him of $200, authorities said.

Less than two weeks later, the same man targeted another delivery man outside 74 Fourth Pl. around 2:30 p.m., cops said. The suspect placed a knife to the delivery man’s chest and stole $250.

He then scooted off with his bounty.

Police could not confirm whether the suspect placed the delivery orders at the restaurants.

The same man is suspected of breaking into a woman’s apartment near Fourth Place and Clinton Street on March 22 and stealing her keys, a ceramic bowl, a Bluetooth speaker, and $5 in coins, cops said.
