BATON ROUGE- Early Friday morning, a guard from the Belle of Baton Rouge casino was attacked by a group of six men being escorted from the property according to casino officials.

A Belle of Baton Rouge spokesperson said the men were acting rowdy on the casino floor, which is why the security team was escorting them off the boat.

As the guard led the men to the parking garage the spokesperson said they jumped him, beating him until help arrived.

"While they were beating him, other male security guards ran up to assist, they were able to pull approximately six guys off of this one guy and those guys that were beating this one security guard fled the scene prior to police arrival," said Cpl. L'Jean Mckneely with Baton Rouge Police.

Now BRPD is reviewing surveillance footage and using information they've collected from the casino to identify the attackers.

If you have information that can help, contact the Baton Rouge Police Department.
