Six men allegedly ganged up on a BT Tires employee when he refused to fix one man's motorcycle, according to a Columbus Police report.

The employee told police he was approached by the turned-down customer at about 1:30 a.m., Wednesday at his 3500 block 14th Avenue home, when the man started to fight with him. The suspect, known only as "Jacob," was then allegedly joined in the fight by five other men.

The victim was left with bruising and lacerations around his face, but refused any medical treatment. A sufficient description of the suspects was not given.
