A Long Island teen was hospitalized after being attacked at a basketball tournament.
Nassau County police say it happened Sunday at about 1 p.m. at the "War for Peace" basketball tournament in Roosevelt.
Detectives say the 16-year-old was watching a game when he was punched and then slashed in the face with a knife or box cutter.

The teen had a laceration from his ear to his chin.
The tournament was being sponsored by the Roosevelt Lions Club in Centennial Park.
