One of the suspects pointed a gun at him as the couple cornered him on the steps, according to footage released Monday night.

The pair then punched the victim in the face before snatching the items from him, cops said.

The victim chased the robbers outside the building, prompting one of them to open fire on him, police said.

The delivery man was not beaten and refused to receive medical treatment at the scene.

Police are still looking for the two suspects.

The incident came a week after Queens Chinese food delivery boy Zhiwen Yan, 45, was shot dead at 108th Street and 67th Drive in Forest Hills, Queens, cops said.

The owner of the Great Wall restaurant on Queens Boulevard told the Post that the disgruntled customer who was wanted for questioning in the case had previously spilled the amount of duck sauce he received with an order.
