Snowball gang in Hoxton rob pizza delivery boy

Food and scooter keys nabbed by icy thieves.

A PIZZA delivery boy had his edible cargo stolen along with the keys to his bike when he was surrounded by a snowball-wielding gang in Hoxton.

The victim was delivering a pizza on his scooter in the snow at around 10.50pm on Friday December 3 when he came across a group of young men having a snowball fight in Felton Street.

As he got closer the group surrounded him and, due to the icy roads, he was unable to drive around them.

The group of six or seven pushed him off the bike, stole the insulated bag containing the pizza and the keys to his bike.

The suspects, described as black men aged 20, then ran along Felton Road and into the Colville Estate.
