Upon completion of her transaction, she reported that an employee subjected her to unwanted physical contact.

Upon arrival, officers interviewed a 15-year-old male victim who reported that an irate woman had struck him with her purse, placed him in a headlock, and scratched him in an effort to take his cell phone away as he was recording her behavior. The woman, of Mount Vernon, was subsequently arrested and charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child for acting in a manner likely to be injurious to person under the age of 17 and Harassment in the Second Degree.

Saturday, March 23, 5:26 pm:  On Parkway Road, officers responded to an attorney's office to assist with an irate client. The client left just before the officers' arrival. The attorney refused to provide any details of the incident to the officers because of "ethical" reasons.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
