A teenager was stabbed in the buttocks Sunday night after three youths confronted him as he walked on Depot Road in Huntington Station, police said.
The 16-year-old, from Huntington Station, was treated at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip for injuries that were not life-threatening, Suffolk County police said in a news release.
The boy was walking on Depot Road at the intersection with First Avenue when three males on bicycles, each about 17 years old, came face-to-face with him, police said. He ran south on First Avenue, police said, and about 10:40 p.m. “became involved in a physical altercation” with the trio near East Pulaski Road.
The teen was stabbed “in the right buttocks area,” police said. The suspects fled.
