Boston police are investigating a “violent assault” in the South End after officers responding to a call for a person screaming for help early Saturday morning found a “semi-conscious” man on the ground near Harrison Avenue and Fay Street.

Police went to the scene around 2:45 a.m., and the man they found was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to a release. Witnesses told police three white men punched the victim multiple times and slammed him to the ground.

Police were unable to find any suspects and are urging the public to contact them with any information. Police did release photos Wednesday of four persons of interest in the assault.
