Besides making 2 DWI arrests this week, Dobbs Ferry police were kept busy with a number of other cases: including alleged harassment, a scratched car and a group of young people who fled a taxi without paying the fee.
- Sometime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. a 25-year-old woman reported that her ex-boyfriend had verbally harassed her at her apartment. The woman is a resident, but her ex—the father of her 1 year-old child–lives outside of Dobbs Ferry. The woman has an order of protection against the 25-year-old man that was ordered outside this jurisdiction; since it is not yet active, Dobbs Police could take no further action but to document the incident.
- At 4:15 p.m. an employee of Children's Village reported an alleged assault against a 15-year-old student that occurred the previous day in Delemos Cottage. The suspect is a male staff member—no age provided. Police are still investigating this case. Apparently the staff member had been attempting to break up a fight between the victim and another resident. The victim claims that the staff member "grabbed him by the throat" causing bruising. The juvenile was treated by the on-site infirmary
- At 5:18 a.m. police received a call from a 27-year-old Queens taxi driver at Station Plaza that four young women and a young man he picked up at 36th street in Manhattan had fled the taxi in Dobbs Ferry without paying their $80 fee. Police canvased the area with negative results. "I was on patrol that morning and they seemed to have disappeared," said Sgt. Rick Guevara. "They may have hopped on the southbound Metro North train, but there's no way of knowing for sure."
- A 42 year-old resident was arrested on charges of aggravated DWI, registering a blood alcohol level of .22 (twice the legal limit.) Read the full story here.
- Police arrested another man for drunken driving at around 3:15 a.m. The story can be viewed at the link provided above.
- A 32-year-old Dobbs Ferry woman reported that while parked in her driveway on Main Street, her 2010 Nissan Sentra incurred scratches to the driver's side door. She provided no estimates as to the value of the damage. The incident of criminal mischief is believed to have occurred between 11 p.m. on the 17th and 2 p.m. on the 19th.
