Two guys eating at Chelsea Taco Bell were served a beating after getting into an altercation with several other men.
On Wed., Jan. 22, around 11:17 p.m., inside the Taco Bell at 224 Seventh Ave., at 23rd St., the two victims, ages 21 and 29, were eating when they got into a dispute with the other group of unidentified males.
The 29-year-old was struck in the face with a sock that contained a weighted object, knocking out two of his teeth. The younger man was struck in the back of the head with a chair, causing a laceration.
The attackers fled in unknown direction with the bag of one of the victims, which contained personal property. The two injured men were transported to Lenox Hill Hospital where they were treated for their injuries.
