He was then taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where police say he was treated for nonlife-threatening stab wounds.
Meredith Barber, a spokeswoman from Leake and Watts, told Newsday the victim is from a Rockaways treatment center, along with 35 other students, and is not affiliated with the Yonkers program.
Outside 197 Valentine Lane, residents say it's a quiet neighborhood and a peaceful community. Those who live near Leake and Watts say the students there can be loud but don't cause any problems.
"They're typically just always on the move," Kevin Jimenez of Yonkers told News12. "I never really see them hanging around or causing trouble."
Yonkers police say they are investigating the attack and that no arrests have been made.
