Four Westbury teens were arrested late Sunday shortly after a 15-year-old boy was cut on both legs as he was pulled from a parked car in New Cassel, police said.
Nassau County police said the incident occurred at 7:40 p.m. near the intersection of Dryden Street and Longfellow Avenue. The boy was taken to a hospital in a private car by a relative. It was not immediately clear what provoked the attack.
The four teens accused in the attack were arrested a short time later - and charged with assault, possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.
Police said the boy, whose identity was not released because he is a minor and a victim of a crime, was sitting in the car when four teens attempted to drag him from the vehicle.
Police said one of the attackers pulled a knife - and cut the boy on both legs. It was not clear how seriously he was wounded. His condition was not known Monday.
Police said those arrested are Jose Osorio-Mendez, 17, of First Avenue, Geovany Hernandez, 17, of Second Avenue, Carlos Argueta-Reyes, 19, of Linden Avenue, and Erick Pacheco, 18, of South Fulton Street.
All were scheduled for arraignment Monday in First District Court in Hempstead.
