Seven teenagers are charged with assault in what Nassau County police are calling a brutal bias attack. Police say two 19-year-old Hispanic males were playing handball in a park on Fletcher Avenue in Valley Stream Thursday. That's when they say a group of African-American male teenagers punched and kicked them without provocation.

The victims suffered cuts and bruises.

Police say some of those arrested admitted to being members of the "Bloods" gang.

The suspects will all be back in court next Thursday.
