2 Hastings Teens Arrested After Irvington Brawl

Police expect to make more arrests as the investigation continues.

Two Hastings teens were arrested after a violent fight broke out at during an Irvington house party on Friday, police said.

"Apparently the groups of youths from Hastings and Irvington had been experiencing ongoing issues," Irvington Sgt. Michael Foley said. He did not believe either group had gang allegiances.

Police responded to a call about the fight on Manor Pond Lane at 9:42 p.m. and called for assistance from Dobbs Ferry police.

On Oct. 1, two Hastings residents—Andrew McGowan, 18, and Serafin Theodoropolous, 18, were arrested and charged with assault. The youths wer released on $500 and $1,000 bail respectively; they will return to court on Oct. 17.

One Irvington resident, who had been at the party, was found injured on Cyrus Field Road and was transported to the hospital. Otherwise, Foley said, there were no one was seriously hurt.

"We have heard allegations that there were weapons involved, including baseball bats and some sort of metal pipe or tire iron," Foley said.

Police also believe there was alcohol involved—though no summonses were issued for underage drinking because police did not witness any of the teens with alcohol.

The 30-to-50 teens at the party were all released to their parents that night.

Police are also investigating damages to three cars parked on Manor Pond Lane in excess of $2,500 and one car with damages in excess of $4,000.

The owners of the home on Manor Pond Lane were out of town at the time of the party.

Police continue to investigate this incident and hope to make more arrests this week.

Your right Joshua, kids do act on impulse. Let's just hope other kids in the area learn from this unfortunate incident.

Yeah, I think thats the most important lesson of them all..learning from our mistakes. I feel like you learn more from a loss than a win so maybe since everyone here is losing we will grow aswell.

wow karl seems to know everything.. There was no alcohol at a party of 75 teenagers? maybe there wasnt any summons handed out for the alcohol, but it was most certainly there. Once again making yourself look like a fool, talking about 'metal pipes', if you knew anything about the situation, you would know that your oh so perfect irvington kids were the ones with the bat(s). Yes plural. And the hastings kids had A pipe. UNO. one. And noone wanted to fight from irv besides the kids who continued to antagonize the hastings kids, by destroying their property FIRST. Yes first, and continuing to talk trash. Maybe your contacts need to get their facts striaght

The Irvington kids were not innocent. They did damage to the two Hastings boy's cars prior to that. The two boys from Hastings were invited to the party and THEN things got out of hand after seeing the Irvinton boys who damaged their cars. I'm not saying the Hastings boys are innocent, but the Irv kids aren't either. And the article clearly states there was alcohol at the house party.

your conclusion that because no irvington teens were arrested they must not be involved is moronic. absence of an arrest is simply evidence of no arrest.
