Police say the man exchanged words with two of his attackers, who followed him and were joined by another man and two women, all in their 20s.
One struck him with a skateboard. Another stabbed him in the back. And a third hit him in the side of the head with a bottle.
When he fell to the ground, police said, the group punched and kicked him. The man was treated at Harborview Medical Center.
