A Modesto man is in critical condition, after he was beaten with a hammer this week near his home. Police say 31 year old Christopher Cruz got into an argument with a man he suspected of burglarizing his home.
After the confrontation Cruz was headed home, when a beat-up red car with a faded finish pulled up and several men with weapons got out. Cruz was left bleeding in the street.
One suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 20´s, with a shaved head except for a shoulder-length pony tail. Anyone who can help find the suspects is asked to call Modesto police.
