2 arrested after Peekskill slashing

Peekskill police say they are searching for a man who attacked a bouncer at a bar early Sunday morning.



The incident occurred on North Division Street around 1 a.m.



Police say the suspect became enraged when the bouncer refused to allow an underage customer into the bar called La Herradura.



The man allegedly slashed the security guard across his face, leaving him with a deep gash from his eye to his chin.



Two others people allegedly involved in the violence are now behind bars. Phillip Hester, 17, and Stanford Beaulieu, 25, are both facing second-degree assault charges.



Police say the security guard is expected to recover.



They are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact them at 914-737-8000.
