ALBANY — A meals shipping and delivery driver was beaten and carjacked in Albany on Saturday early morning, according to Albany law enforcement.

Officials responded to experiences of a theft on Peyster Avenue all around 10:50 a.m. Saturday, police claimed. 

The driver told law enforcement he was making a delivery in the neighborhood just south of the College or university of Saint Rose when he was approached by two males who questioned him to exit his vehicle. 

When he did, a 3rd suspect entered his vehicle and stole it, police said.

The two suspects then punched and kicked the target several situations — triggering him to slide to the ground and sustain injuries — right before escaping on foot via yards, police stated.

All 3 suspects are described as wearing dim-coloured outfits. 

No further details ended up offered Sunday and the investigation is ongoing, city police claimed.
