Around 4 pm on September 26 a Secor Road man made a disturbing discovery. He heard a woman screaming and he walked outside of his home and called 911. As he was calling he looked into a wooded area of the Sanitation Department property and saw the woman who was screaming on the ground with two men on top of her. She screamed, “Why are you doing this to me?” and “ “Mom”, “Mommy”. The caller had a limited view of the men. He turned away to call the police again and then saw a car leaving the area. Police searched the area for the car and the people but were unable to find either. A hotline broadcast was made to surrounding agencies.
Theft: Two men entered the 7-11 on Garth Road around noon on September 20 and began to request items that were behind the counter. One of the men distracted the store employee while the other grabbed the donation box for Muscular Dystrophy that was on the counter. The two then left the store. Police were able to capture the suspects’ faces on video. The amount of money in the stolen box is unknown.
Damage: The windows of a Village-owned shed at the transfer station at Crossway and Mamaroneck Road were found broken on 9/27. The windows are valued at $800.
Identity Theft: A Popham Road man reported that someone had made three fraudulent purchases on his credit card on 9/16 at an AT&T Store in Hoboken, N.J. totaling $4,000. He also stated that another fraudulent purchase of $1,200 had been made on his card at the same location about three months ago. At that time, the credit card company issued the man a new card, but the account number on the new card was very similar to his old account number.
Locked in: A Yonkers’ woman accidently locked her 5-month-old great grandson in a Jeep when she was in the process of having the valet park the car for her at the CVS on Popham Road. On the morning of 9/25, she left the keys on the drivers seat, closed the door and then realized the boy was locked inside. Al Porpora of Heathcote Exxon arrived and was able to unlock the car and remove the baby, who was in good condition.
Golf balls: A Sherbrooke Road woman called police on the morning of 9/27 to report that she found five golf balls on her property that were hit from her neighbor’s putting green on Heathcote Road. Police agreed to speak to the neighbor about the errant balls but the neighbor said they were away the previous weekend and no one was hitting golf balls. She also said that they have installed a net to catch the balls.
Plumbing supplies anyone? Residents of Lyons Road called police on the evening of September 27 when UPS delivered two large boxes from a plumbing and heating supply company to them. The packages were addressed to an unfamiliar name at their address. Police told them to call UPS and ask for them to take the boxes back.
Strange: A Carthage Road woman told police about two suspicious visits she received on 9-27 and 9-28. On 9-27 around 5 pm, two disheveled men appeared at her door and asked about the building materials that were used to build her house, claiming they wanted to replicate it. The next day, around the same time, an unkempt woman came to her door and asked about a tree that is located on the property line. The police said they would make extra ride-bys of the house.
Gunshot: On Hutchinson Avenue, three young men were planning with a BB gun at 1 am on 9/29 when the gun went off by accident and hit an 18-year-old boy on the side of the head. The shot caused a bump and the man refused medical attention. All three boys agreed it was an accident.
Recycling the recycling: On 9/29 a Sage Terrace man complained that boxes for recycling that di not belong to him had been left outside his house. There was no scheduled pick-up the following day. Police issued a summons to a neighbor whose name appeared on the boxes.
Noise from the dumpster: A Popham Road resident complained about noise from Savona Restaurant at 11 pm on September 30th. The woman said an employee of the restaurant was throwing glass bottles into a dumpster causing “excessive noise.” When she yelled down to him to stop, the employee threatened her. Police spoke to the restaurant’s chef who agreed to throw out bottles before 10 pm and said the employee would no longer be working there.
