Police: Two arrested in knife fight after teen cut

Two Oyster Bay men face assault charges after they pulled knives during an altercation, causing a teen to cut his hand, Nassau County police said Tuesday.

Allan Nunez, 18, of 223 Mill River Rd., and Marvin Zavala, 18, of 117 Pine Hollow Rd., face charges of second-degree assault, second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

They were arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead. Bail was set at $20,000 for Nunez and $15,000 for Zavala. They were represented by Legal Aid, which has a policy of not commenting on cases.

The victim, 17, was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, police said.

Second Squad detectives said Nunez and Zavala became involved in an altercation with another teen at about 9:55 p.m. at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park on West End Avenue.

The two "displayed knives and caused the 17-year-old victim to sustain a laceration to his hand," police said in a news release.

Both Nunez and Zavala fled the scene and were found a short time later inside the park grounds, police said.

They were arrested without incident.
