Five men wearing masks stabbed two people on Wednesday after a charter school graduation outside Hofstra University’s sports complex on Long Island.

According to FOX 5 New York, a source confirmed that the attack at Uniondale Charter School’s graduation was planned.

The source said the masked men assaulted an adult guest outside the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex at Hofstra University in Hempstead right after the ceremony ended at 4 p.m.

One person was cut on the leg, and another on the ear, according to the station.

Officials from Academy Charter High Schools said the attack seems to be linked to a family argument.

“All guests entering the graduation went through metal detectors,” Academy Charter High Schools said in a statement. “We want to emphasize that this incident happened outside the graduation venue. Our security team is working with Nassau County Police and Hofstra Public safety officers.”
