Suffolk Teens Accused of Hate-Crime Spree

Riverhead - (WALK) Four teens face up to 25 years behind bars if convicted for their roles in a recent series of violent attacks and robberies of Hispanic men in Huntington Station, according to Suffolk prosecutors.

The boys, ages 16 and 14, inflicted injuries including concussions, and cuts and bruises on their victims, then robbing them of wallets, phones, groceries and even their shoes said prosecutors during their arraignment in Riverhead Friday.

The suspects are all residents of Huntington: Justin Stridiron, 14; Nykwon Harrison, 16; Kyree Johnson, 14, and Eric Mann Jr., 16. Each boy is charged with robbery as a hate crime, a felony, and will be tried as an adult, said prosecutors.

Each suspect was held on $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 bond.  Johnson was reportedly released after posting bond.
