Three residents were charged Tuesday for allegedly breaking into a staff member's home, police said.
The students—aged 15, 17 and 17—allegedly knocked on a staff member's door, where his niece was staying. The 18-year-old opened the door slightly, police said, but refused to let them in.
According to police reports, the three males forced their way into the building on Zimmerman Avenue, ultimately stealing liquor bottles and the victim's cellular phone.
All three students were charged with burglary—a felony—and one 17-year-old and the juvenile face charges of "forcible touching" for putting their hands on intimate parts of the woman's body, said Lieut. James Guarnieri.
The three were arrested on campus, arraigned and remanded without bail.
The juvenile suspect appeared in Yonkers Family Court today. The two adults have court dates of July 12 in Dobbs Ferry.
Guarnieri said 6-to-7 Dobbs Ferry officers were involved in the arrest and a canine unit from Westchester County PD.
"We certainly didn't call the helicopters," Guarnieri said. "The county police sent them to circle the campus and monitor the situation. It was definitely appreciated, but we had the situation under control."
