( Daily Mail ) A man who offered to help pay for a meal at a fried chicken shop in Brooklyn was instead brutally beaten by a group of four men before he was robbed.
The 37-year-old victim, who was left in critical condition, offered to spot two men when they didn’t have enough money to pay for their meal at Texas Chicken and Burgers in New York on March 1.
An argument broke out, and four men began punching, kicking, and striking the victim with his own cane before another man entered and emptied his pockets, police said.
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.
Police are now searching for the men pictured in the surveillance video.
Anyone with information regarding the incident should call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

( Review Journal ) A man wanted since the start of the year for brazenly robbing several east valley businesses at gunpoint is the same man wanted for killing a man and injuring a waitress Saturday at an east valley bar, Las Vegas police said Monday.
“We need your help,” Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Dan McGrath said during a media briefing Monday. “We have an escalation of violence that is a serious concern for everyone in the community. We have concerns that he could commit a robbery tonight. He is armed, he is dangerous, and he has a propensity for violence. We need to get him off the street.”
Police believe the same man committed all the crimes because of surveillance footage, physical evidence and the firearm used. In at least two of the robberies, the suspect fired at least one round.
“Unfortunately for us, our fears about this person’s violence continuing came to fruition this weekend,” Metro robbery Lt. Jack Clements told reporters Monday.
The Saturday morning homicide at the OK Corral bar, 1602 N. Nellis Blvd., was not a robbery, police said. A man originally entered the bar about 6 a.m. with a woman and danced for about an hour, surveillance footage shows.
