Is this about the lame man that was healed? (Acts 4:9)

“Were they being questioned

Today,

Because of a good deed

Done to this ailing man?

Are they asking

How this man has been healed?”

εἰ ἡμεῖς σήμερον ἀνακρινόμεθα ἐπὶ εὐεργεσίᾳ ἀνθρώπου ἀσθενοῦς, ἐν τίνι οὗτος σέσωσται,

The author of Acts indicated that Peter asked if they were being questioned (ἀνακρινόμεθα) today (εἰ ἡμεῖς σήμερον), because of a good deed (ἐπὶ εὐεργεσίᾳ) they had done to this ailing man (ἀνθρώπου ἀσθενοῦς)?  Were they asking how this man has been healed (τίνι οὗτος σέσωσται)?  Peter responded by posing a question as to why these religious leaders were after them?  Were they being questioned about the good deed of healing this lame man?  Peter got right to the heart of the matter.  Do you question people who arrest you?
