A Hilton Head Island man was knocked to the ground and kicked by two men outside his apartment Tuesday evening, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

The victim was outside his Hilton Head Gardens unit when two black males approached and began to punch him in the face and head, the report said. When he fell to the ground, the suspects kicked him repeatedly in the head and body.

The suspects ran away when someone yelled at them to stop, the report said. The victim was transported to the hospital with multiple cuts and swelling to his head and face.

He told deputies he could not describe the men and had no idea why they attacked him.
