According to authorities, a man who offered to help pay for a meal at a Brooklyn restaurant was beaten and robbed for his kindness.
A 37-year-old man offered up some money to the alleged attackers when they entered the establishment and said no one would give them a dollar. Apparently the offer set them off.
One of them replied, “I’ve got money, I’ve got money” — and the man sitting in the booth was then told to “mind your f***ing business!” police sources told the Daily News.
They then started punching the 37-year-old man and tried grabbing his cane, police sources said.
The victim swung his cane back at his attackers, but suddenly three other men ran inside the restaurant and joined the beat down, punching and kicking the victim in his head and body.
After the assault, another man came into the restaurant and went through the prone and bleeding victim’s pockets, apparently taking items, before fleeing with the rest of the suspects.
As the injured man lay on the ground, two customers apparently ordered dinner as if nothing had happened.
