Four men accused of beating a Hispanic immigrant nearly to death appeared before a judge yesterday.

Ronnie Juett, 23, Jarron Sligh, 23, Keith Walker, 18, and 19-year-old Jamal Walker are being charged with gang assault after they allegedly attacked Julio Serrano, an Ecuadorian immigrant, last month.

Cops say a surveillance camera caught part of the attack on tape.

Serrano's sister believes race played a role in the attack, and possible hate crime charges are being investigated.
