NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A man riding his bike down a Long Island road was attacked by a gang of young men on Monday night.

Nassau County police say that it happened about 9:30 p.m. in New Cassel.

The 35-year-old man was riding his mountain bike on Hopper Street when he was approached by five to seven men.

Police say they grabbed the victim off of his bicycle and attacked. They say the man was punched and kicked in the face and arms.

One of the attackers took the bike and the others ran away.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. His condition was unknown on Tuesday morning.

Police did not have a very good description of any of the attackers. They were described as black males around 19 to 20 years old.

Detectives request anyone with information to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. They say that all callers will remain anonymous.
