A man was critically injured in an attack with a baseball bat near Lake Merced in San Francisco early Sunday morning, a police spokesman said today. The assault was reported around 1:45 a.m. in the 200 block of Skyline Boulevard. The victim, who is in his early 20s, was walking in the area when a group of six people approached from behind, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said.

One of the suspects kicked the victim, then a second suspect hit him in the head with a wooden object that a witness described as a baseball bat, Andraychak said. The victim was taken to a hospital with injuries that were considered life-threatening, but he was conscious and gave a statement to officers before being taken there, Andraychak said. One of the suspects was described as a Hispanic man around 30 years old who was wearing a baggy shirt and black pants, but no arrests had been made in the case as of this afternoon, he said.
