Tauranga police are searching for a group of men that attacked a young man early on Thursday.

The 25-year old required stitches for a deep cut to his mouth after he was attacked by up to five people as he walked along The Strand about 3am.

His wallet was stolen during the attack.

Police say the men were seen driving around town earlier in the night in a dark-coloured sedan.
