Twelve minutes. That's all the time a State Supreme Court jury needed to find a Yonkers man guilty of attacking another student at Buffalo State College last fall.

Mohamed Kaba Kaba, 23, was convicted of second-degree assault for the September 7, 2015 attack that started with a fistfight outside a student housing complex.

As the fight escalated, Kaba pulled out a box cutter and slashed 23-year-old Tyrell Ganey at least five times.

Prosecutors say Kaba and Ganey had an altercation at an off-campus party a few days earlier.

Kaba faces up to seven years in prison when he is sentenced July 8.

Ganey has since graduated from Buffalo State. The attack left him with scars on his body.
