Tarrytown's train station figured into the police blotters quite a few times last week:
A man on August 8 told Tarrytown police he was approached that morning by someone saying he needed train fare as he was locked out of his house. The complainant described the man as well dressed, balding, with a goatee. But police found no such man.
A 27-year-old woman having a seizure on a southbound train was met with Tarrytown Volunteer Ambulance Corps at our station on the afternoon of August 8. The woman was taken to Phelps Memorial Hospital.
While police were there on August 8 for the seizure incident, a sergeant was informed by the train conductor that there was a suspicious and unclaimed package on the platform. Our police passed this onto MTA police who would have an officer and a K9 unit come check it out.
Also on August 8 at 11:46 p.m., a caller reported that a man was lying on the northbound platform. Officers on the scene requested an ambulance for an intoxicated male. He was taken to Phelps Memorial Hospital by TVAC.
On August 11 at 6:44 p.m., ambulance assistance again was requested for an intoxicated woman on the northbound train. This woman was taken to Phelps as well.
