Investigators say a woman left the apartment building while the assault was taking place and cut the victim with a knife.

A citizen witnessed the assaults and contacted police. Police say the entire incident was captured on video surveillance.

The victim and suspects were not known to each other.

The victim was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
