A Pasco County teen is recovering from a brutal beat down after four men attacked him on his way home from school.

Security cameras caught it all.

Early Wednesday evening, the men punched and kicked Gulf High School sophomore, Geoff Lehman, knocking out three of his teeth.

“Bump right here. Bump right here and there’s a bump on the back of my head,” said Lehman, as he pointed out places on his head.

Security video shows the men riding in a Blue Ford ranger.

“I was on my way home from school and crossing the street I seen [them] like pull over. Two of them got out of the truck and two of them were in the truck,” said Lehman.

Cameras caught the pair walking on the sidewalk.

“On my way walking, I noticed two of them following me, like kept following me,” said Lehman.

He knew trouble was brewing.

“I texted my mom and said, ‘someone’s following me. That’s been following me.’ And she started calling me, when I answered it, they attacked me,” said Lehman.

Video shows them bum rush Lehman from behind. He is immediately knocked to the ground.

“When he messaged me that people were following him and then right when I called him, the phone picked up and these guys attacked him,” said the victim’s mother, Stephanie Byrd.

“I got hit from behind and knocked to the ground. And they just kept kicking me while I was on the ground. And they pulled me and started punching me,” said Lehman.

His mom tried calling, then rushed to the scene. A neighbor driving a tow truck saw what was going on and stopped to help.

The attackers jumped into the pickup and took off.

Lehman has no idea who the men are.

“I just hope that they’re caught so they don’t do it to someone else,” he said.

“I hope the cops do their job and find these worthless pieces of crap,” said Byrd.

The robbers got away with Lehman’s cell phone, backpack, wallet, learner’s permit and $10.

He now faces getting implants for his three missing teeth.
