“Gavin DeGraw is currently recovering and in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital where he was taken . . . by ambulance after he was attacked by a group of assailants. He suffers from a concussion, broken nose, black eyes, cuts and bruises. The police are conducting an investigation of the attack.
