Cops: Teen arrested after stabbing at football game
Police say a teen has been arrested after a young man was stabbed in a parking lot during a high school football game in Dix Hills Friday night.
It happened at the Half Hollow Hills High School East parking lot during a game against Smithtown High School West.
The unidentified 19-year-old victim was stabbed twice in the back. He was hospitalized with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
Police say 17-year-old Kamal Williams, of Melville, was arrested in connection with the stabbing. He was arraigned in court today on charges of assault and menacing.
Williams' family was in court to bail him out. His father, Chaz Williams, denied that his son was the culprit and added that Williams is a student at Nassau Community College who was at the game to cheer on his friends.
"My son is not a stabber, he did not stab anybody," said Chaz Williams. "There are eyewitnesses that say he wasn't involved in the stabbing, and I think that the detectives need to do a better investigation."
Investigators say they believe the suspect and victim knew each other, and the fight stemmed from a prior dispute.
The game continued during and after the stabbing, but some students who spoke with News 12 said the incident put them on edge.
