COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A disabled man was assaulted by a group of men with brass knuckles.

The incident took place Thursday evening, but the victim didn't report the aggravated assault until Saturday afternoon while he was in the hospital.

Columbus Police reports show the victim tells them a group of black men assaulted him at his home on Munson Drive.

The victim says he was struck in the face with brass knuckles and he then fell to the ground. He tried to get up and run away but the individuals surrounding him made it impossible. He then tells police he was hit and kicked all over his body.

He was transported to the Medical Center to be treated from bruises, cuts and several teeth that were knocked out during the attack.

He did not have a description of the suspects.
