They then kicked him in the head, causing many facial fractures and a brain bleed.
The man, 23, was transported to the hospital immediately after the incident for treatment and is currently healing at home.
Another 32-year-old guy was assaulted while attempting to stop the attack, and his face was lacerated.
Detectives today published CCTV photos of two males they believe may have information that can help with the investigation.
Merseyside Police Detective Inspector Chris Saidi said: “Thankfully, the man’s injuries are not life-threatening, and he is now recovering at home, but this was still a horrific attack for him to suffer that could have left him seriously injured.”
“Since the event, we have conducted a number of CCTV and witness investigations. We would want to urge to anyone who recognizes these males or witnessed the attack to come forward and speak with us as we feel they may be able to assist us with our investigations.”
