5 men sought in baseball bat attack

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Police are searching for five suspects following an attack on two Native American men in which the two were beaten with baseball bats.

Police say the two men, a 20-year-old and a 43-year-old were walking on Garland on July 22 around 9:30 a.m.

Five white males in a white 1990s Nissan Maxima style vehicle yelled something at them and the two men said something back. Words were exchanged and the vehicle stopped in the middle of the road. All five suspects exited the vehicle, two carrying baseball bats.

The two men were beaten while being verbally attacked with racial slurs.  The victims each suffered multiple cuts and both received stitches. One of the men was in the hospital for three days due to small epidural hematoma.

The suspects are all described as white males in their 20s. They all had shaved heads and were shirtless at the time of the attack. After the assault, they jumped back in their car and fled north on Stone.

Detectives are searching for any witnesses of this crime.  Anyone with any information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
