A Providence City Councilman says he was hit by a car and beaten up by a group of men early Friday morning.

Davian Sanchez tells ABC 6 he was leaving "Escape Bar" in Providence and was trying to break up a fight when a few men drove up from behind him on Douglas Ave. and knocked him down.

Sanchez says they continued attacking him as he tried to get up. He eventually was able to get away and call police.

He has bruising on his face and some scratches but is OK.
