Surveillance video shows a homeless man att*cking and robbing a Good Samaritan who tried to cover him with his coat.
The incident happened on Wednesday morning, Jan. 12, on a Midtown sidewalk in New York.
A 59-year-old man, while walking along the road, saw Xavier Israel, 25, who was laying on a sidewalk in front of 476 5th Ave.
The victim tries covering Israel with his jacket but Israel leaps to his feet and att*cks the Good Samaritan then steals his wallet from his pocket.
Police arrested Israel shortly after he fled the scene on West 41st St. and 5th Ave.
They recovered nearly $1,500 from Israel after witnesses told them he stuffed cash inside his pants.
According to sources, Israel was charged with assault, robbery, and grand larceny.
