ASTORIA — Police were hoping for tips about the robbery of a Chinese food delivery man last month.

Three men flashed a gun and stole the courier’s cash, his electric bike and the meal he was delivering July 28 at about 7:15 p.m. near the corner of 27th Avenue and 12th Street, according to the NYPD.

The trio was captured on an elevator surveillance camera, police said.

A man wearing a white shirt and black du-rag allegedly displayed the gun while two other men wearing black T-shirts took the money, bike and Chinese food, cops said.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website at or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
