After the assault, the assailants got back into the car which was then driven away.

The victim needed hospital treatment for his injuries.

Anyone who witnessed the assault, which occurred between 10-11pm on Monday, September 19, or who saw the car being driven in the local area is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 5 of September 20.
