Car Rollover, Harassment, and Indecent Exposure

overturnedcarRollover Accident Results in DWI Arrest:  Following a rollover car accident at Brayton Road and Walworth Avenue at 10:30 p.m., April 29, police arrested Daniel Ortiz, 34, of the Bronx, on charges of driving while intoxicated (first offense) and having an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle. Ortiz got out of the car, stating he had only minor injuries. He was the only occupant of the car. While interviewing Ortiz about the accident, police noticed Ortiz's breath smelled of alcohol. He told police he "pounded a couple beers in the past hour." Patrol also saw an open bottle of Heineken beer inside the car. He failed field sobriety tests, and an alco-sensor test measured his blood alcohol level at .219%. Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps arrived to evaluate Ortiz. Ortiz said he was not injured and did not want medical attention. He told medics he had consumed approximately six beers in the last hour. He was arrested and taken to White Plains Hospital Center for further evaluation. After being released from the hospital, Ortiz was taken back to headquarters where he was booked and processed. He was released at 4:30 a.m. to his mother on $150 cash bail. His car, a 2013 Honda Accord, was towed to the police impound lot. The following day, a Walworth Avenue man alerted patrol's attention to two plastic bags filled with beer bottles that the driver allegedly removed from the car following the accident.

Harassment

The caller has allegedly threatened to kill the owner or whoever has answered the phone. The owner wants the calls to stop. Police are performing extra ridebys of the bakery.

The caddy master at a Secor Road Golf Club stated a caddy threatened him after the caddy was fired from his job April 30. The caddy master was not in fear for his safety, but he wanted to document the incident.

Indecent exposure
A young white man, in his teens or twenties, wearing a bright green ball cap, gray shorts and a gray shirt allegedly exposed himself on the footpath connecting Meadow and Bradford roads at 4 p.m., April 24. A woman walking her dog on the path saw the man with his shorts down masturbating in the bushes. After she walked away from the man, she turned back and saw him still standing in the same position masturbating. The woman again saw the young man walk past her house and re-enter the footpath at 5 p.m. That is when she called police. Patrol canvassed the area for the man but did not find him.

Broken window

The mother noticed some of her family's personal belongings packed with the au pair's things and called police. These items included clothing, electronic devices and household items.

Police advised the woman how to fix her credit report.
