If you thought that the days of vicious attacks by motorcycle-riding thugs had gone the way of the strategically placed comb in the back pocket, think again: According to the Los Angeles Daily News, a group of bikers beat a man in Van Nuys, then left him in the street.

Police called the attack, which happened in the 8300 block of Sepulveda Boulevard near Roscoe Boulevard at about 4:15 p.m. on Sunday, "brutal."

Not much information is available about the victim's condition, however he was able to speak to police, telling them that several people attacked him then sped away on their motorcycles.
