When he got off his bike to confront the bottle thrower, he was pushed to the ground by the group of three men who proceeded to punch and kick him in the face.

One of the perps also hit the victim over the head with a scooter, which caused lacerations to his head and bruising to his face. Cops have yet to identify the group.
