MS-13: Illegal Alien Gang Members Stab Teenager On Long Island
HUNTINGTON STATION, New York (WABC) – Police said a teen was stabbed in an attack by 3 MS-13 members from his high school behind a Long Island Burger King. It happened on New York Avenue in Huntington Station around 2:30 pm Wednesday.
The 16-year-old victim told police he was at the fast-food restaurant with friends when 6 of his classmates from Huntington High School entered and began staring at them menacingly.
Feeling uncomfortable, the victim and a friend left and the 3 gang members followed them, wielding bats and knives, police said.
An altercation broke out in the parking lot and that’s when 19-year-old Ramon Arevalo Lopez allegedly stabbed the victim in the back. Another 16-year-old boy suffered a minor injury in the fight.
The stabbed 16-year-old was later taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The suspects took off, but police caught up with them and arrested them about a mile away.
Lopez and 2 other suspects, 20-year-old Nobeli Montes Zuniga and 17-year-old Oscar Canales Molina, were charged with 2nd-degree assault.
Police said they had blood on their clothing and hands during the arrest. Molina was found with 2 knives, one in each of his socks.
According to police, Lopez entered the US illegally on December 8, 2016. He was picked up by the Department of Homeland Security in October 2017, but a federal judge released him from custody in June.
Zuniga and Molina entered the country illegally as unaccompanied minors. Molina was picked up by DHS in July 2017 but released by a federal district judge in November 2017.
The suspects were arraigned Thursday. Bail was set for each at $35,000 cash/$75,000 bond. Police continue to investigate the incident.
