Police: Student Pressured to Stab Peer

This report was derived from information from the Dobbs Ferry Police Department, it does not indicate a conviction.

A Children’s Village resident is accused of allegedly asking one of his peers to stab another student, then assaulting the victim along with two of his 15-year-old friends after the victim refused. 

Police said the 17-year-old victim sustained bruising to his forehead, back, neck and shoulders after he was jumped by the students on Nov. 13 around 6:30 p.m. on school grounds. 

The 16-year-old suspect was charged with assault in the second degree, a class D felony, while the two 15-year-olds were given juvenile delinquency appearance tickets. All are required to show up for future court dates.

Do the same kids involved also get to walk the streets of our town with no oversight or warning from the CV administration? We are entitled to know. I question the protection the CV security provides me as a Dobbs resident. Dangerous felon/prision like culture in my backyard and the CV administration has done nothing to provide security for us. Then if something really bad happens, they will say how sorry they are, and how they will now make changes. But it will only be so they don't get thrown out, or sued. Not because they care.
