Following the attack, the gang ran off down the cycle path towards Tesco. The teenager was treated in hospital and released on Monday.
One of the suspects has been described by police as a black six foot tall male, of skinny, muscular build and aged between 18 and 19 years old. At the time of the attack, he was wearing grey skinny jeans with a pair of grey Nike Air Max trainers and a green Khaki camouflage parka-style jacket.
A second suspect has been described as a black 16-year-old male of skinny build with short hair, dressed in black jogging bottoms, a shiny black puffer coat which had a hood.
The other three gang members have been described by police as black males of a similar age.
