The teenage is said to have been set upon by the gang in Alicante, South-eastern Spain, during the city's San Juan festival, reports The Sun .
The festival is a huge event in southern Spain, with hundreds of people descending on beaches, where bonfires are lit and food and drink enjoyed at night.

The man then called police who arrived to arrest the group, the website reported.
One witness quoted by Olive Press said: "The police arrived and the boys were detained. Several people said they were between 13 and 15 years old.
"They looked like they were Moroccans."
Another said: "Several shouts were heard and in a few minutes the police were already in the area.
