Bronxville Has Second House Break-in in One Week; Reward Offered for Information

By Staff

May 20, 2015:  Following a break-in last week on Sunday, May 10, on Governors Road, the Bronxville Police Department reported via an eAlert a second burglary that occurred on Summit Avenue on Saturday, May 16. 

The burglary at 5 Governors Road occurred while the owner was away, the owner said. The alarm system, however, had been set, thus alerting the police of the entry. The burglars evidently entered through a window on the second floor and made off with a small safe containing $500 and various personal documents. An investigation is under way. 

An investigation is also under way for the burglary that took place the following week on Summit Avenue. It occurred at 10:58 pm at 35 Summit Avenue while the owners were in the house. The eAlert states that "entry was made into the home by forcing open a second-floor window"; this is the same method used in the Governors Road break-in. The eAlert continues, "The homeowners were accosted in the home by two black males and property was stolen from within the home. The suspects fled on foot." 

In the same eAlert, Chief of Police Christopher Satriale said that the police department is "asking residents who have cameras recording the exterior of their homes in the following locations to contact the police department immediately: Summit Avenue, Woodland Avenue, Studio Lane, Beechwood Road, Hemlock Road, Hawthorne Road, Masterton Road, The High Road, Tanglewylde Avenue and Pondfield Road."

The eAlert further says that if items such as jewelry and coins are discovered on your property, do not touch them; call the police department immediately.

In the eAlert, residents are urged to "lock and alarm all windows and doors in their homes and activate the burglar alarm system at all times—not just when you are away from the home."

Residents are also asked to immediately report suspicious noises, persons, motion light activation, or suspicious vehicles to the Bronxville Police Department. 

New York State Crime Stoppers issued the following statement: "New York State Crime Stoppers is assisting the Bronxville Police Department by offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for a violent home invasion at 35 Summit Avenue, Bronxville, N.Y. Anyone with information regarding this incident should call the NYS Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-866-313-Tips (8477). Callers can remain anonymous. Citizens with pertinent information may also go to the NYS Crime Stoppers website http://www.nyscrimestoppers.org."

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.
