Moving Fight

A 911 caller reported a fight in progress between two groups of men in the Walgreens parking lot on Nov. 23 at 12:33 a.m. 

Officers on the scene found out that the dispute was about two missing cell phones. The fight had started at 1 River Plaza and continued into the shopping center lot, proceeding into Sleepy Hollow. Police found the three at inside a venue on Clinton and Cortlandt Streets.

The complainants reported that they had agreed to drive the suspect from the 7-Eleven in White Plains to 1 River Plaza for $7. The passenger got out there and got the $7 from his girlfriend's apartment. When he returned, the complainants accused him of stealing two iPhones in the car. 

A fight ensued. 

"While the suspect was running to Sleepy Hollow he tripped and sustained a laceration to his eye," police said. 

Sleepy Hollow police were on the scene when Tarrytown police arrived and had called an ambulance for the injured man. The complainant's were taken to headquarters for statements. The suspect was taken to Westchester County Medical Center by Sleepy Hollow Volunteer Ambulance Corps. 

Police went to the WCMC to speak to the patient but were told by the doctor that the man was too intoxicated and busy being treated for his wound to speak to police. 

Police filed a petty larceny case that is under investigation.
