Police said the man was screaming in pain and had numerous bruises, cuts and open wounds. He was bleeding heavily from his mouth and chin, and several of his upper teeth were missing, according to the reports.

The man’s hands and feet were bound with cords, he was blindfolded and his pants were down to his ankles, police said in the reports. Witnesses told police the man had been trying to walk down the street.
