Witnesses shouted to the men to leave the victim alone.
The three men then got back into their cars and drove off.
The victim suffered an eye injury and three fractures to his cheekbone, which will require an operation to insert a metal plate.
One man, aged 26, was arrested and has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
Detective Constable Grover Campbell, the investigating officer, said: "This was quite a nasty incident and the victim was understandably shaken.
"It appears both cars were acting in convoy and this may have been a planned assault. Although we have one person arrested we are still looking for more information."
