Barron Hilton, Paris Hilton’s brother, was assaulted by New York resident Ray Lemoine, it was reported.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Lemoine has been identified as the attacker.

24-year-old Barron Hilton told authorities a man struck him in the face after the two had an argument at a party Friday in a Miami Beach home. Hilton suffered deep cuts on his forehead and nose. He posted a photo of the injuries online.

According to the police report, witnesses told police that the suspect wanted Hilton to leave and hit him in the face with an unknown object. The suspect then fled in a dark green SUV.

But based on witness testimony, the attacker was identified as Lemoine, who police are trying to interview to get his side of the story.

Hilton reportedly accused Lindsay Lohan of ordering the attack.
