A 37-year-old man, who remains unidentified, remains in critical condition after being assaulted at Texas Chicken and Burgers in Flatbush, Brooklyn.
The victim, who was left in critical condition, offered to spot the two men when they did not have enough money to pay for their meal while dining at the New York restaurant on March 1.
Instead of accepting or politely declining the good samaritans offer, an argument ensued, and four men began punching and kicking the victim, even beating him with his own cane. Afterward, another man entered and emptied his pockets, police said.
EMS took the victim to a local hospital where he received treatment for broken bones, lacerations, and contusions.

The victim’s act of good will was rebuffed by the two men, before an argument ensued around 7.30pm at 521 Ocean Avenue in Flatbush. The situation soon escalated and the two men started throwing punches and using the 37-year-old’s cane to beat him.
Two other men entered the restaurant and joined in on the attack, with surveillance footage showing the group of four kicking the victim in the head and body. Other customers at the restaurant looked on, with some trying and failing to step in.
After the four attackers fled the restaurant, a fifth man entered and emptied the victim’s pockets while he was still lying on the ground. The victim was eventually taken to the hospital, where he was treated for broken bones, cuts and bruises.
The New York City Police Department are asking anyone with information about the incident to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477
