Four Glen Cove teens, including twin brothers, were arrested Sunday and charged with gang assault after police said they were involved in "a physical altercation" that left one person hospitalized.
Nassau County police said Monday the assaults occurred on Rams Hill Road in Glenwood Landing on Saturday at 10:50 p.m.
During those assaults, the four suspects injured three victims, ages 17 to 20, police said.
Two of the victims received cuts and bruises to their faces but refused medical attention at the scene, police said. The third victim was taken to a hospital suffering from a seizure, as well as what police called "multiple cervical and facial fractures."
Arrested were twins Artan Berisha and Adrian Berisha, 16, of 10 Locust St., as well as Ralik Jackson, 16, of 19 Putnam Ave. and Elijah Watson, 17, of 10 Matthew Heights. All four were charged with first-degree gang assault and second-degree assault, police said.
