The three friends were walking up Abington Street behind three unknown men at around 4am on Sunday, September 8.

Shortly after the group passed the men, one of them attacked the man from behind, pulling him to the floor and repeatedly punching and kicking him.

A second suspect then joined in by kicking the man, before the third man also tried to kick the victim.
