Attackers beat down, rob man enjoying late night dinner in Bronx

Lucy Yang has more details.
Thanks to surveillance cameras, detectives have a clear image of the half dozen attackers who turned a late night dinner into a nightmare.

The attackers used a gun and their fists to beat down and rob a 32-year-old man who was just trying to enjoy a late night dinner with his wife.

At 2:30 on Saturday morning at Reyna's Restaurant on University Avenue in the Bronx, police say a woman in a long dress somehow got the victim to step outside. Seconds later, the victim was attacked.

Michael Edwards said he was at the restaurant at the time. He doesn't speak Spanish, so he does not know what the woman said to lure the victim out of the restaurant. The police report said she was part of a group of violent men and women. Six of them were caught on surveillance tape. Police believe all of the suspects are in their 20s, and at least one of them is armed.

The mugging happened right outside the entrance to the restaurant. The women went in and out of the place that night, but the owner told Eyewitness News that she didn't recognize her.
