PORTLAND -- A man claims he was assaulted after trying to sell marijuana to former Portland Trail Blazer Zach Randolph at his home in West Linn Sunday.

James Beasley, 26, told KGW that he went to Randolph's home to sell marijuana and when there was a disagreement over price, so several men beat him with pool sticks.

After Beasley told the same story to detectives from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, they searched Randolph's home around 12:30 Sunday morning.

Randolph, who was not considered a suspect in this case, was home while the search took place, police said.

Beasley said he suffered a concussion in the attack.  His brother, Robert, told KGW that they were upset with Randolph for not stopping the attack.

"I am very, very disappointed," said Robert. "Zach was there and should have stopped it. He could have stopped it.'

Attempts to reach Randolph for comment were unsuccessful Sunday.

This would be the second violent incident involving one of Randolph's friends this year. On New Year's Day, a nightclub bouncer was shot to death in downtown Portland. Kevin Moffett, a known member of Randolph's entourage, was later arrested and charged with the crime.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is seeking tips and information regarding this crime.

Anyone with information concerning this crime is encouraged to contact the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office's confidential Tip Line -- by telephone at 503-723-4949, or by using the online e-mail form. The case is  reference #11-25154.
