State police are looking for two men in the beating of a man with an aluminum baseball bat near West Middle School in Westminster late Tuesday.

Police reports said Chandler Todd Hanley of Westmoreland Street in Westminster had three teeth knocked out and suffered welts and a lacerated lip.

Hanley told police he was talking to a female friend in the 100 block of Schaffer Ave. about 11: 30 p.m. when the men approached. He said one was about 19 years old with blond hair, and the other about 19 with brown hair.

He told police he began to walk away when one man struck him several times with the bat.
