The victim, who asked to be called by his first name, Michael, told WBZ-TV the attack happened in the middle of the afternoon.
Michael says a Black Acura was tailgating him, with the driver honking his horn because he was going the 40-mile-per-hour speed limit.READ MORE: December Weather Preview: Could Boston Have A White Christmas?
After pulling over to let the tailgater drive by, Nguyen allegedly pulled up next to Michael and began swearing at him before he sped off.
While driving to the police station to report the incident, Michael says Nguyen came back so he pulled over, got out of the car to talk some sense into the upset driver and that’s when he punched Michael more than 20 times until he became unconscious.
