The Delmar Loop area where the attack occurred has several restaurants and nightclubs.
The victim said he did not know the attackers. He was walking to the Metrolink train.
Video of a violent, unprovoked attack in St. Louis’ Delmar Loop is spreading on social media sites.
The video, which was taken Sunday near the Pageant, shows a group of people punching and kicking a man who was walking on Delmar Boulevard on his way to the Metro stop. It’s the apparent latest video showing the “Knockout Game;” where one or more person tries to knock out an unsuspecting victim.
The victim suffered a concussion and had to get 19 stitches.

There have been several “knock-out game” attacks in St. Louis by black youths since 2011. One retired Vietnamese man was murdered in a knockout game attack. St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay was the first one on the scene at another bloody attack in South St. Louis City.
One local teen told St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce in 2011 that he participated in over 300 “knockout game” attacks in the city.
