The assault happened at 6:40 p.m. Saturday at 19th Avenue South and 4th Street South, on the west side of the Carlson School of Management.

Two suspects reportedly followed the victim from West Bank Grocery to the bus stop by the Carlson School, and they then punched him in the face.

His attackers then ran west into the Cedar Riverside neighborhood.
