A man who was allegedly glassed while he tried to sell his car in Adelaide has spoken out after leaving hospital.

Muhammad Bilal, 31, wanted to sell his Subaru Impreza on Facebook Marketplace three days ago but instead he was left fearing for his life.

Bilal met up with an interested buyer and two of his friends in the car park of the Avoca Hotel at Clarence Gardens on Tuesday night.

The promising candidate sent Bilal his ID, a $20 deposit and a real-time video of himself before they met.

After a short test drive the prospective buyer allegedly demanded Bilal hand over his phone.

“If you can pass me the phone I can transfer to you,” Bilal said he was told.

”Otherwise you will lose the money and car as well.”

When Bilal refused, the trio allegedly lashed out.

“He started smashing the glass on my face … he just break the glass on my face,” Bilal said.

Bilal waited two days in hospital for plastic surgery but has since been allowed to go home.

He said his keys, car and $6500 worth of cash were taken while he was down.

Bilal said he didn’t know what was going on.

“I was traumatised,” he said.

Minutes later, three people were seen dumping the car outside an Edwardstown business.

A trio was arrested on Wednesday morning. They have been bailed and will face court early next year.

Bilal was forced to wait two days in hospital for plastic surgery but has since been allowed to go home.

“I have more pain, in my head, in my mind,” he said.
