I was walking home with my girlfriend when I was confronted by a group of men.
The group started to taunt me as they walked closer. One male stepped forward from the group as though to calm the situation down, and placed his arm across my chest and started to push me away from the others.
At this point I had not noticed that the group had split up and there were now only two other males in front of me who started to walk away.
I thought the situation had calmed down and that my girlfriend and I would be able to walk home safely.
Unfortunately it was at this point when I was pulled and spun round from behind and punched repeatedly in the face. This knocked me unconscious, injuring my cheek and cutting my upper eye.
After waking up from being knocked unconscious I started to feel very sick and dizzy. An ambulance was called and I was taken to hospital.
