A 49-year-old Kenmore man remains hospitalized after he was attacked by five people while at a house in the 8100 block of Northeast 155 Street.

Police arrived at the house around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, where the man had been pistol whipped at least five times, according to a King County Sheriff’s Office report.
