Anonymous Explicit Letters Sent In Dobbs Ferry

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – Three sexually explicit letters were received by two Dobbs Ferry residents on Thursday, Oct. 18. The letters were typed and contained the same message. Police did not elaborate on the contents.

Two of the letters were addressed to the women, one 47 years old and the other 50 years old. The third was addressed to an unknown woman. The letters are similar to an incident in Ardsley in early October when five residents received explicit letters.

A third woman received a letter in the mail from an unknown person on Thursday, police said. The woman reported the letter was alarming, but police said it’s unclear whether this letter was related to the others. Both Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry police said they haven’t determined whether the Dobbs Ferry letters are related to the Ardsley letters.

The following items also were reported by Dobbs Ferry police:

School Assault: A 17-year-old Children’s Village student was punched in the face at Greenburgh 11 High School about 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19. The victim suffered a bruise to his left eye and nose. Police said charges are pending against an 18-year-old student.

Store Assault: A 19-year-old Stop & Shop employee was arrested about 7:40 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, after he got into a verbal and physical altercation with a 60-year-old customer, police said. The victim, a Tarrytown resident, told police he approached the employee to ask about an item he had left in a cart. The employee, a Yonkers resident, then punched him in the face, causing swelling to the victim’s face and jaw, police said. The employee was charged with third-degree assault, a class A misdemeanor.

Check Fraud: Employees at Chase bank reported that a man attempted to cash a fraudulent check about 4:45 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, and fled when employees tried to authenticate the check. The man attempting to cash the $690 check was described as black, in his 20s, and wearing a red sweater and tan pants.

Identity Theft: A Dobbs Ferry man reported that he received a bill Oct. 10 for a Macy’s account he never opened, police said. The bill was for a $231 purchase made at a Macy’s store in Manchester, Conn.
