This is the moment two brothers brutally beat a 50-year-old man in a shop after the checkout woman refused to give them a free beer.

The incident occurred in a shop in the village of Gorno Cherkovishte in the municipality of Kazanlak in central Bulgaria after the two brothers asked the female worker to give them a free beer as they had a ‘winning cap’ which entitled them to one. 

The shop worker, Angelina Pondeva, told reporters that she did not give the pair the free beer, telling the brothers they had to retrieve it from a bigger shop, which apparently sparked an argument.

In the video, the brothers can be seen arguing with the worker when one of them turns to 50-year-old Galin Cherakchiev who is standing next to them and headbutts him in the face. 

The argument continues before the other brother punches Cherakchiev in the face hard, sending him crashing to the floor but the thug continues the beating, kneeling over the 50-year-old and repeatedly punching him in the face before the brothers walk out of the shop.

The victim can be seen lying motionless on the ground and when an onlooker tries to lift him he slumps back down, seemingly unconscious.

He told reporters he had simply told the brothers that they should go elsewhere to receive their free beer, and added: “He headbutted me and blood started to spill from my nose. I don’t remember anything. When I got home, I sat on the bed and I thought to wash myself with cold water, to not scare the children as I saw that I was all bloodied.”

He has since been diagnosed with a broken nose, bruising and haematoma.

The suspects have been detained and will be charged with assault, according to reports.

The details about the ‘winning cap’ believed to be part of a promotional campaign, are unclear.
