NEW YORK (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested one of four men who beat a man inside a New York City restaurant during an attack that was captured on the eatery’s surveillance video.

The New York Police Department says a 37-year-old man offered to help four men pay for their meal at Texas Chicken and Burgers in Brooklyn’s Flatbush section early on the morning of March 1.

Police say there was an argument before the four men attacked the man, punching and kicking him and hitting him with his cane. The video then shows the victim lying on the floor while one of the men appears to rob him.

The victim was treated for broken bones, cuts and bruises.

Police on Thursday charged a 21-year-old man who lives hear the restaurant with robbery and gang assault.
