Crossing St Nicholas

A Jew heard that St Nicholas protected against theft, so got a statue to protect his premises when he went away. But thieves broke in so he beat the statue as if it was human, promising to beat he/it every day till his goods were returned. The frightened thieves returned the goods after the saint appeared to them in a dream. But the saint was angry, bruised & bleeding demanded restitution from the Jew who converted to Christianity.
