Question of the Day
Boy fatally stabbed at high school
NEW YORK — A 15-year-old boy was stabbed during an after-school robbery at a suburban high school and died at a hospital early yesterday, authorities said.
Michael Alguera was playing handball Friday with two friends on a court at Hempstead High School when they were confronted by as many as nine persons, some of them masked, police in Long Island’s Nassau County said.
The attackers, possibly gang members, robbed the boys of a cell phone and an MP3 player, then stabbed Michael in the torso, police said. He died at Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre, officers said.
The boy’s companions, ages 15 and 16, were not hurt.
No one had been arrested, police said.
Two indicted in cross-burning case
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Two white men accused of burning a cross on a black family’s front lawn were indicted on hate-crime charges Friday.
Christopher Hudak, 20, of Cortlandt, and Ryan Martin, 19, of Montrose, were charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime, which carries a maximum prison sentence of seven years, District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced.
The two men are accused of setting fire to a 4-foot-high cross on Nov. 21 outside the home of Clara and Wesley Artope in Cortlandt.
The Artopes’ 15-year-old son had been in a fight earlier that day with Mr. Hudak’s sister at Hendrick Hudson High School.
