Malik Harrison, 17, and Kymel Sims, 18, both of North Amityville, suffered stab wounds to the back and torso. Their injuries are not considered life-threatening, and they are listed in stable condition at Good Samaritan Hospital.
Foster was arraigned today and was ordered held on $100,000 cash bail or $300,000 bond. He is due back in court on Oct. 24.
