Cops are looking for these two men who didn't pay their bill and then beat up the owners of Goodfellas Diner in Maspeth.

Even mobsters paid their check before leaving.

Two cheapskates who dined and dashed earlier this month at a Maspeth restaurant — then beat up the eatery’s owners when they tried to collect the bill — remain at large, according to police.

 

The incident took place at 7:50 a.m. on Oct. 1 at the Goodfellas Diner located at 56-26 Maspeth Ave. Formerly known as the Clinton Diner, the restaurant had a starring role in “Goodfellas,” the acclaimed 1989 Martin Scorsese mob film starring Robert DeNiro and Ray Liotta.

According to authorities, the two suspects ate breakfast and attempted to leave without paying. When the 70-year-old male owner tried to prevent the pair from leaving the diner, he was punched in the face by one of the suspects.

Moments later, the 67-year-old female owner tried to write down the license plate number of the car, law enforcement agents said. The first suspect then snatched the writing pad from her hand and threw her to the ground. He then got into a nearby car with the second suspect, and they fled southbound on Rust Street.

Officers from the 104th Precinct responded; the female owner was removed to an area hospital in serious but stable condition. She suffered a broken arm and a dislocated shoulder.

The first individual has been described as a Hispanic male, 25 to 30 years old, weighing 180 pounds, last seen wearing a blue jacket and dark-colored pants.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 25 to 30 years old, weighing 200 pounds, with a beard, last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater and gray sweatpants.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
