BOERUM HILL — A teen on his way home from school was slashed in the face by four men who held his hands behind his back, police said.
The 18-year-old victim was walking near Hoyt and Bergen streets around 7:45 p.m. on March 13 when he was approached by a man who asked, “Do you have a problem?” the NYPD said.
When the victim said no, the suspect took a swing at him, police said.
Three other men then showed up and held the victim’s arms behind his back, while the first suspect used a knife to slash the right side of his face, the NYPD said.
He was treated at Kings County Hospital, police said.
No arrests have been made.
