DEER PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Police on Long Island say three teens have been arrested after a man was knocked unconscious when he was punched in the head during an unprovoked attack.

It happened Wednesday in Deer Park.

Suffolk County police say the 60-year-old man was walking along Deer Park Avenue when he was attacked from behind and punched so hard that he was knocked unconscious.

Police said the 15-year-old boy who attacked him jumped into a car with two other teens. The victim was hospitalized with several facial fractures.

Police said the teens were arrested on assault and reckless endangerment charges.

One of the boys is also accused of punching an 18-year-old man in the head at a Taco Bell restaurant in Deer Park during a separate incident on Wednesday.
