Police have made two arrests but are searching for at least a dozen other suspects in a weekend attack that critically injured a Long Island man. Police say they're investigating a possible bias motive in the beating. They note that the victim is white and the teenagers involved were all black.

Detectives don't know what prompted the incident. But they say there are reports that racial comments were made by someone at the scene.

Nassau County police say the 30-year-old Valley Stream man was repeatedly kicked and punched in the head, face and chest early Sunday outside his home. He suffered a fractured eye socket and a concussion.

The two suspects were awaiting arraignment on gang assault charges.
