Police said the assault occurred just before 3 a.m. Feb. 7 outside the Classico Bar on Jerusalem Avenue in Uniondale. The incident involved Perotte and a 33-year-old man with whom he had what police called "an ongoing dispute."

After both men were asked to leave the bar, police said the dispute continued outside -- where police said Perotte drew a knife and slashed the victim across the forearm and head.

Perotte then fled.

Police said the victim was taken to a hospital, where he received about 60 stitches to close the wounds. The status of the victim's recovery was not clear.
