Sometime between 2 p.m. on July 1 and noon on July 7, an office building on Fisher Avenue was broken into and $3,000 went missing. The owner of the office told police she locked the door on July 1, but returned to find the door slightly open and unlocked and papers on her desk were disturbed.


Around 5 p.m., police responded to a domestic violence call at 110 Fisher Ave.

The victim told police her husband verbally abused her. When she walked away, she alleges that he followed her, punched her in the face, chocked her, pulled her hair and ripped off her underwear.


She told police his anger stemmed from the night before, when she asked a man for directions and alleged a similar episode occurred then, but she did not file a report.

She had bruising and swelling on her face, neck, right foot and hands, but refused medical treatment.


The husband told police his wife attempted to stab him, so he slapped her.

Both had been drinking for extended periods of time. He was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation.

On July 7, an 88-year-old woman was scammed out of $2,000 by a man that pretended to be her granddaughter’s husband, who lives with her granddaughter in California. The man acting as her grandson-in-law claimed he was in New York City and was arrested and needed $2,000 for bail. The victim bought four cash cards for $500 each from Pathmark.

The next day, the man called back saying he needed another $5,000 for court fees, which made the victim’s friend suspicious and urged her to call the police.

Eastchester police reached her granddaughter, who said she and her husband were both in California.

Police responded to a 911 call reporting a fight between a boyfriend and girlfriend.

The victim told police the incident started outside of Gulf Mart at 318 White Plains Road after she told her boyfriend she no longer wanted to be in a relationship with him.

She alleges the boyfriend, who she said had been drinking, proceeded to verbally assault her and then became violent by choking her and punching her in the face.

The boyfriend was arrested and charged with obstruction of an airway.

There was no dollar amount given for the jewelry.


Around midnight, police received a 911 call from a Waverly Avenue residence followed by a hang up. Police responded to the scene and found the victim leaning out of a second floor window telling police, “He broke the phone and won’t let me come downstairs to talk to you.” She told police her husband broke her phones and is blocking the stairwell. When police reached the apartment, the victim told police she attempted to close the window and turn on the air conditioner and alleged her husband pulled the thermostat from the wall.


The victim claims she called his mother to tell her about his behavior, but he broke the phone to pieces. She picked up another phone to call 911, but he allegedly broke that phone as well.
