— Raleigh police were searching early Friday for at least two people who beat up a man near North Carolina State University's campus late Thursday night. 

Officers found the man in a parking lot at the corner of Hillsborough Street and Dan Allen Drive just after 11 p.m.

His name was not released, but authorities said he was taken to WakeMed Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Investigators said Friday they were trying to determine if the suspects and the victim knew each other.

It wasn't clear what started the fight, but according to police, at least two suspects left the scene in an SUV following the incident. 

No other information was released.

    Yeah, since when is 7-8 blocks anywhere from 3.5 to 9 miles away? Chavis Heights is about 3.5 miles from Campus, Raleigh Blvd. is about 4.5 miles, and Poole Rd. is about 9 miles from campus. WOW!!! Those are bigger city blocks than Manhattan! I'm impressed!

    Maybe they thought this dude was the creeper peeper and exercised a little vigilantism on him.

    imagine that, a phd student from unc not not knowing what they're talking about. ncsu isn't any closer to "hoods" than basically any location in any larger city.

    As if UNC Phd's argument were even valid, Chavis Heights isn't even a "hood" anymore. Google it, dude.

    NCSU is 7 blocks from Chavis Heights? What were you smoking when you were doing 'engineering' work on the NCSU campus? Chavis, Poole Rd etc are miles away.

    I frequent that area on other week nights, and it's usually quiet. Thursdays are known for folks doing a bit of drinking in the bars on that block, so I wouldn't be surprised if some drunk talking turned into drunk fighting. I've seen that happen there on more than a few occasions, too.
