FORT GREENE - A Brooklyn teen and his family were introduced Tuesday to two men who saved the teen from a knife-wielding attacker.

Joshua Martinez, 14, was attacked from behind on Greene Place Friday morning while walking to school at Brooklyn Tech. Martinez says he was slashed three times in the face and left on the sidewalk.

James Lombardo, who lives nearby, was on his way to the gym with a friend when he saw Martinez bleeding. Lombardo says Martinez yelled, "Mister! Mister! Help me!"

The two men kept pressure on Martinez's wounds while they got help. The teen needed hundreds of stitches.
