Authorities say a white man was attacked by eight Hispanic men with a baseball bat in Lakewood in what could be a bias crime.

Police say the man was walking his dog outside his Paris Court townhouse complex when he was assaulted just before midnight Saturday. He was treated for injuries to his head and face. Police Lt. Steve Allaire said the attackers were identified as Hispanic and the 36-year-old victim was not.
