Detectives need the public’s help in finding five men who knifed a pizza deliveryman and robbed him on a Brooklyn street earlier this month.

Police released video on Friday showing the suspects involved in the caper that occurred at 4:30 a.m. on Feb. 8 along Walton Street between Union and Marcy Avenues in South Williamsburg.

Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old deliveryman dropped off food and was on his way out of a building when the group approached him.

Cops said the suspects stabbed the man in the left and right legs, then grabbed his bicycle, cellphone, a pizza, a jacket and $70 in cash. They then fled in an unknown direction.

The incident was reported to the 90th Precinct. Paramedics rushed the victim to NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull, where he was treated for puncture wounds.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit the Crime Stoppers website or send a direct message on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
