A 21-year-old man was attacked by three other men in Dobbs Ferry while walking home from the train station with his 15-year-old brother. Police said the victim is a Hastings resident and was attacked on Broadway in front of the Cabrini nursing home in Dobbs Ferry last week. It was rumored the man had been stabbed, but police said that isn't necessarily true. Police said the victim was walking home from the train station with his 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. The victim was punched, his lip was cut and his Yankees hat was stolen. He later discovered a non-life threatening puncture wound in his chest that he had not previously noticed according to police.
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. 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 police were able to find the three men and arrest them. Christopher Chipelo, 18, Lamor Evans, a 19-year-old Children's Village resident, 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 were remanded and their trial date is set for July 14 at 10 a.m.
Meanwhile, there was a complaint by a Dobbs Ferry woman who reported that on July 5 between noon and 3 p.m. someone allegedly stole jewelry out of her bedroom. The woman has a home aid and a cleaning lady who come into her home, but police do not have any suspects or leads.
On July 4, a Moulton Avenue resident had various items allegedly stolen from their garage. Police said the garage was open and unsecured and a bike, toolbox, assorted tools and a car battery jump starter were missing from the garage.
