DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. - A Hastings man was a victim of an attack on Broadway in front of the Cabrini nursing home in Dobbs Ferry last week. It was rumored the man had been stabbed, but Dobbs Ferry police said that might not be the case.
The 21-year-old victim was walking home from the train station with his 15 year old brother on July 5 at approximately 3:40 a.m. when he was accosted by three males who had gotten out of a car that had pulled up, according to police in Dobbs Ferry. The victim claimed he had been punched, his lip was cut, his hat was stolen and he later discovered a non-life threatening puncture wound in his chest that he had not previously noticed, police said.
The victim did not see a weapon so police do not know how the injury was caused, but speculated that it may have been from the attackers holding keys while punching the Hastings man, they said
The victim walked away from the attack and flagged down a passing Hastings police officer on Broadway. Dobbs Ferry police were then contacted and the victim said he knew one of the attackers so Dobbs Ferry were able to find the three men and arrest them. Christopher Chipelo, 18, Lamor Evans, 19, and Aaron Phillips, 20, were all arrested and charged with robbery in the first degree, gang assault in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child. The three, who police said were all from Dobbs Ferry, were remanded and their trial date is set for July 14 at 10 a.m.
