A man who was beaten and robbed by two thugs as he was waiting in a fast-food drive-thru lane on Oct. 21 later helped police nab them.

The hungry victim was in the drive-thru lane, near 14th Avenue and 65th Street, at 1:50 pm when the perps walked up and demanded money. When the victim got out of his car, the first perp threw a bottle at him, while the other punched him in the head.

They swiped his gold chain and fled, but thanks to the victim’s identification, they were later picked up by police.

The jewelry was returned.
