Police on Staten Island are investigating another possible hate crime.

Investigators said a 31-year-old Mexican man was walking home from playing soccer at Faber Park when he was attacked by five men yelling anti-Mexican slurs.

The attack happened around 5:00 p.m. on Friday on Richmond Terrace in Port Richmond.

He was hit several times. The attackers also took his backpack.

The victim was taken to Richmond University Medical Center. Officials said he suffered head trauma, a broken jaw and needed stitches above his eye.

Investigators are still looking for the attackers.

The neighborhood has been the scene of several similar attacks in recent weeks.
