While trying to escape, the victim got stuck in the traffic. Then he rolled his window down and told people in the other car to call 911.

One of the attackers threw a big stone at the victim's car.

Police said a male rider began punching the man through an open window, while others continued to kick his car. Another suspect reportedly threw a piece of a pipe through a Buick’s rear window and another threw a large rock through another window.

The man stopped at Joe's Quick Market after the attackers fled.

The victim was eventually able to walk away, stopping at Joe’s Quik Market, where he passed out and fell to the ground. Boston EMS responded and was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center, where he lives. Police said he was expected to survive.

Massachusetts State Police and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office are investigating the matter. Anyone with relevant information is being asked to call the State Police Detective Unit for Suffolk County at 617-727-8817.
