A man was stabbed and beaten after confronting a group of taggers who were defacing a vacant business in Anaheim on Sunday night.

Several taggers were spray painting graffiti on a building located at Lincoln Avenue and Stinson Street when the man, whose identity has not been released, tried to stop them. When the man approached the group and asked them to stop, they turned on him and began beating and stabbing him multiple times, according to the L.A. Times. The good Samaritan was taken to UCI Medical Center, according to Anaheim Police Officer John Hasso.

There have not been any arrests in connection to the attack and the police have not yet identified the attackers. According to City News Service, the attackers fled in a newer model four-door dark blue Nissan sedan.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call (714) 765-1900.
