BEIJING, Aug. 10 (Xinhuanet) -- Singer Gavin DeGraw was released from a New York hospital on Tuesday after apparently being attacked by three men and hit by a taxi cab, causing a concussion, broken nose and numerous cuts and bruises, according to Reuters on Wednesday.

Police said they were investigating an assault by three males in the city's East Village in the early morning hours, but said it was unclear what led to the attack.

"The victim claims to have been struck by these individuals and taken to hospital," a police spokesman said. Police would not comment on whether DeGraw had been drinking.

The 34-year-old singer also reported having been struck by a taxi soon after the assault. He had just left a group of friends when the attack took place.

No arrests have been made and no motive has emerged for the assault.

DeGraw has been the opening act for the first leg of rock bands Train and Maroon 5's U.S. tour. His spokeswoman said that due to the injuries, DeGraw will not be performing on Aug. 12 or 13.

"Gavin and his family appreciate everyone's concern at this time," the spokeswoman said in a statement.
