THIS is the shocking moment a takeaway customer was stabbed in the chest in broad daylight – allegedly during a dispute over a £4 cheeseburger.
Footage shows a man wearing a white t-shirt and grey leggings charging out of a city centre takeaway doorway in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
He is holding a pink plastic chair, which initially he appears to be using as a makeshift shield.
The man then hurls the plastic chair at the knifeman, who then repeatedly slashes at him.
The attacker appears to land half a dozen blows with the blade as the victim backs up against a parked car, holding his arms out to defend himself.
The knifeman’s friends then appear to intervene to calm him down and lead him away.

They also lead the injured man to the side of the street where he slumps down with his back against a shop doorway.
Shoppers are seen walking past, barely glancing at what is happening and the man who filmed the attack ends the footage saying: “F—ck it. I am off in pub for a pint.”
Two men were later arrested after cops were called to Scot Lane in Doncaster at 4.40pm on Thursday after stunned bystanders raised the alarm.
Posts on social media claimed the violence flared following an argument over a £4 cheeseburger.
