Man answers beer snub with sucker punch

The jerk couldn’t take no for an answer.

A Hispanic man in his 30s asked a 28-year-old man to buy beer for him Sunday at 3 a.m. in the 2000 block of Mission Street, police said.

The victim refused and the thirsty thug left, only to return and grab the victim’s wallet. To add insult to injury, the creep punched him in the face with brass knuckles, cops said.

The victim sustained a cut to his mouth and the sucker-punching goon fled on foot, police said.

No arrest has been made.
