Two teenagers accused of attacking a Brooklyn eighth-grader in a school cafeteria, leaving him blind in one eye, have been charged with assault as a hate crime. WCBS-TV reports the boys were arraigned Friday in the June 5 assault on 14-year-old Kardin Ulysse at Roy H. Mann Junior High School in Brooklyn. WCBS reports Ulysse has had five surgeries and a corneal transplant. He was punched in the face until his glasses broke and is blind in his right eye.
