Maniac chucks chair at man dining outside NYC pizzeria, steals phone: video

A maniac hurled a chair at an unsuspecting man dining outside a Hell’s Kitchen pizzeria — and then grabbed the victim’s phone, which fell to the ground during the wild attack, according to shocking new video. 

The 66-year-old victim was left with a broken forearm bone after the suspect approached him at a table outside Amore Pizza Cafe on West 58th Street near Ninth Avenue, suddenly picked up the chair and chucked it at his head, cops said Wednesday.

The impact caused the victim to drop his cellphone, cops said of the attack, which occurred at 10:30 p.m. Sept. 9.

The attacker took the opportunity to pick the phone up and run off with it, the footage shows.
