It happened on New York Avenue in Huntington Station around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The 16-year-old victim told police he was at the fast-food restaurant with friends when six of his classmates from Huntington High School entered and began staring at them menacingly.
Feeling uncomfortable, the victim and a friend left, and the three gang members followed them, wielding bats and knives, police said.
The situation escalated, and 19-year-old Ramon Arevalo Lopez stabbed the victim. He (the victim) was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
It could have been a lot worse.
The suspects tried to flee the scene, but the police eventually caught them.
Lopez and two other suspects, 20-year-old Nobeli Montes Zuniga and 17-year-old Oscar Canales Molina, were charged with second-degree assault.
Police said they had blood on their clothing and hands during the arrest. Molina was found with two knives, one in each of his socks.
Surprise surprise. These alleged MS-13 gang members are in the country illegally.
According to police, Lopez entered the United States illegally on December 8, 2016. He was picked up by the Department of Homeland Security in October 2017, but a federal judge released him from custody in June.
Zuniga and Molina entered the country illegally as unaccompanied minors. Molina was picked up by DHS in July 2017 but released by a federal district judge in November 2017.
Aw. They were caught and RELEASED. How nice of the federal judges to make that happen. We gotta keep the best and brightest, you know? Even if they’re a little stabby.
Continue with your day. Please ignore. You know MSM will. I’m sure de Blasio will take good care of them and stuff. Free health care! The works! Not to worry!
