DeKALB – DeKalb police are investigating an incident in which six to eight men attacked a man on West Hillcrest Drive in DeKalb.

The victim suffered minor injuries after the attack about 3:30 p.m. Monday, Lt. James McDougall said. Initial 911 reports indicated the group used baseball bats and chairs in the attack, but the victim did not see either items and evidence on the scene did not suggest they had been used, McDougall said.

The suspects had fled by the time police arrived, McDougall said. Police were continuing to investigate the incident Monday evening.
