BOSTON (WHDH) - State police are asking for the public’s help identifying the dirt bikes and ATV riders who allegedly attacked an 82-year-old driver in Boston last week.

Police say the man was driving on the Bowker Overpass at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 18 when 30 to 40 people on dirt bikes and ATVs forced him onto the curb and smashed his windows.

The riders followed as the man drove toward a police station near Storrow Drive and Soldier’s Field Road, and when he rolled down his window to call for help a rider punched him while other suspects threw rocks and pipes through his windows.

The elderly Brookline man was eventually able to drive to Joe’s Kwik Market and fell to the ground in the parking lot.

He was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover.

Police are asking anyone who saw the alleged attack or took video to contact state police at 617-727-8817
