COSTA MESA – Police are looking for four men who beat a bicyclist and stole his bicycle tonight.
The bicyclist was riding on Placentia Avenue near 16th Street about 9:15 p.m. when the four men attacked him and stole his silver and red Beach Cruiser, Costa Mesa police Sgt. Matt Grimmond said.
The man was taken to Hoag Memorial Hospital in Newport Beach with a cut to his face and abdomen pain, Grimmond said. The group of men were last seen with the bicycle headed west on 16th.
One of the assailants was said to be wearing a tight fitting gray suit, red bowtie, and blush. When the victim began screaming insults as they rode away, he heard the suit wearing assailant yell,
"I know you are, but what am I?"
