A Uniondale man faces an assault charge after he cut another man on the neck with a sharp object, Nassau County police said.
Authorities said Edwin Gonzalez, 23, went to a 24-year-old man’s home at 11 p.m. Friday in Levittown, where an argument turned into a fight. Gonzalez struck the man in the neck with an “unknown sharp object,” then fled the scene, police said.
Gonzalez ran away and left his vehicle behind, police said. The victim was taken to a hospital, where he is being treated for a lacerated artery, police said.
After an investigation, police arrested Gonzalez on Saturday morning in East Meadow. He has been charged with second-degree assault at arraignment Saturday at First District Court in Hempstead. A temporary order of protection was issued and Gonzalez was held on $20,000 bond or $10,000 cash, according to online court records. His next court date is Tuesday.
