A Flanders man reported to police that another man tossed boiling water in his face on Saturday, burning the victim near his eye.
The victim was uncooperative and told police, “I ain’t no snitch and I ain’t signing or giving no [expletive deleted] statements.” The man was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center and eventually did give up the first name of the man who threw water on him, and even called him on a cell phone. The man on the phone said he threw scalding water on the victim because he had spat on him, according to police.
Due to the extent of the victim’s burns, he was later transported to the Stony Brook University Medical Center burn unit, police said.
