Six Arrested After 'Very Disturbing Attack'

Two Tarrytown, three Sleepy Hollow, and one Ossining resident have been charged with gang assault after the alleged attack of a 41-year-old man in early October.

It was described as a "very disturbing" attack by Lieutenant Anthony Bueti, and Sleepy Hollow Police Chief Gregory Camp said detectives have been at work ever since to bring the suspects of a gang assault to justice.

According to Camp:

On October 6, 2012 at about 3:30 am a 41-year-old male walked into police headquarters and reported that he had been assaulted at a bar on the corner of Beekman Avenue and Barnhardt Avenue. An ambulance was called and transported the victim to the hospital for injuries sustained in the assault. Officers attempted to locate suspects. An investigation was started and the following individuals have been arrested and charged with Gang Assault in the Second Degree:

  • Oscar Segarra, a 26-year-old residing on S. Washington St., Tarrytown
  • Mario Guzman, a 29-year-old residing at Franklin Courts, Tarrytown
  • Hipolito Guzman, a 24-year-old residing on College Ave., Sleepy Hollow
  • Paola Herrera, 38 years old, residing on Depeyster St., Sleepy Hollow
  • Erlin Almonte, 30 years old, residing on Dale Ave., Ossining
  • Manuel Salazar, 23 years old, residing on College Ave., Sleepy Hollow

Camp noted it has been a complicated process to identify, locate and arrest so many people. He had been unable to provide more case details earlier so as not to impede the ongoing investigation.

It's hard to believe that a fight occurred at a bar in the early morning hours, usually only good things happen at bars around that time, like vomitting, remorse, and possibly date rape.

Informative, articulate and impassioned piece, Andrea. Duuuhhhh!!! One on one over ten bucks is "immature", six on one is gang assault. SHPD has nothing to do with the investigation into the other thug/punk gang assault perpetrated against the football players. It happened in Ossining, genius. Nice job SHPD and Detectives.

Glad to see that justice has prevailed. I understand that some of these assailants are politically connected. I understand that at least three of these perpetrators (Almonte and the two Guzman Brothers) are friends of the village attorney and her party. I hope that they don't try to cover up such a heinous crime. Perhaps a change of venue to the Mt.Pleasant court should be considered here. Do we know what the bail was set at for these people? Most of these individuals if not all are no stranger to the judicial system and need to spend some time in jail. Thanks again Krista for keeping us up to date with fair and accurate reporting.

Very well said "Truth" and "winning10591" Krista, I am surprised that the comments from Ms. Santiago were allowed to be posted and not flagged as inappropriate considering the language that was used. Krista: perhaps you could enquire with the Ossining police as to the status of the investigation on the SHHS incident. Although if it is an ongoing investigation, they will not be allowed to make much comment - per the law...

Exactly Andrea! The press seems to leave out some extremely important facts & makes him the victim. To winning10591, did you know that he is a drug dealer who has been destroying our streets & selling drugs to children? & has his own son selling crack for him? What do you have to say about that one!!?? So maybe you should think twice on who your defending but then again you must be a family me member He is out on parole & will now go back to jail where he belongs & stop causing problems on our streets!!!
bill smith November 09, 2012 at 05:02 PM
Also to winning10591 you should get your facts straight on who is friends w/ who before you make stupid comments about our village employees. They've been arrested right? So where is the friendship? Dummy!!!!
Truth November 09, 2012 at 07:04 PM
So Bill and Andrea, these six law abiding citizens(sarcasm) were helping to keep the mean streets of Sleepy Hollow safe? They were attempting to rid the streets of this drug dealer? Wake up! This all happened in the wee hours of the morning at a bar that frequently has noise complaints, fights, questionable young ladies that are shipped up from the city for men to "dance" with (lol) and now we know, (thanks to the two of you.. lol) drug dealers. So the fight was over ten bucks? Did one of these "super hero's" not make good on a drug dept? You two sound like you're protecting someone and the exact type of person that has contributed to Beekman and the surrounding area becoming a dump. It's always the fault of the po'lice, the government, the schools, etc.. If you want lawlessness move to the Bronx with the rest of the animals. I don't know any of these dopes and think you both sound like idiots. So glad I moved out of that slum you call the inner village of Sleepy Hollow. Again, great work SHPD/Detectives.
bill smith November 10, 2012 at 12:44 AM
Another ignorant person, to Truth, for someone who is "glad they moved out of the slum you call inner village of Sleepy Hollow" you sure are all involved in what goes on here, it must not have been such a bad place for you after all!!!! or you just must not have nothing better to do!!! Anyway as I stated before, it's the press that doesn't state the right facts, I never said anything about the police dept or detectives, they do the best they can do!!! I just hate drug dealers!!! & it seems that you & winning10591 like to protect them!! Must be someone you deal with since you are stating that the $10 is over a drug debt, how do you know so much about that!!?? I don't know these six ppl but I have heard about this so called victim as do many ppl & maybe he needed a stronger sentence from his previous crimes (hence the word CRIMES) and this would have never happened. He came out of jail and started selling drugs again!!! So that make it all ok right? Don't think so!!! Not to mention what has been going around town as to what led up to the fight & the broken bottle he was trying to use to stab ppl with. I guess they should have left him alone and we would be discussing murder charges instead. Get your facts straight before you make such ignorant comments but then again you have to hide behind a name like truth instead of your real name!!!
Andrea Santiago November 10, 2012 at 01:22 AM
That's right Bill!!!…..Ignorant people who go by what they hear without knowing what the actual facts are!!! N to Krista I do apologize for using fail language, my mistake, I just so livid, over the fact that people defend this "CRIMINAL" without knowing or may be really "knowing" who he is…n your rt Bill they must be family or friends defending this scoundrel (*low-life)!!! N yeah u know what I guess police&detectives do what they "can"! Because reality is in this town events like these don't happen as often and when they do the police is all over it trying to solve it! Oh n Truth, this happened during day hours? Again misinformed!!! That lying CRIMINAL u defend states that!! You'll c when he goes back to jail!!! Right now he's on the low because he knows what's better for him.
Andrea Santiago November 10, 2012 at 01:25 AM
OH winning10591!! Isn't envy killing u!!! Don't u just wish u had the same luck!!! Life just works that way, don't the rich because they have $$$ get away with it all!!! U just wish u had it that way too!!! lmao!!!

Let it play out in court.

To "Andrea" and "Bill", both whom are certsinly using assumed names, it is quite apparent that you both have a direct relationship with the defendants in this case. I however do not have any kind of relationship with any of the parties involved. What I will say is that I do not and will not tolerate corruption and deceit on any level, and I will call out anybody who attempts to use their influence to interfere with the judicial process. These arrests should have been made weeks ago, and it took a command decision and maybe a little pressure to get it done. Also, I will caution anybody who wishes to make defamatory remarks towards anybody else without having supporting facts to prove it. To say that somebody is using their son to sell drugs is a strong statement and without proof, could result in severe consequences. As to my statements, I can provide supporting facts for everything that I say, including proof of the direct or indirect relationship of some of these defendants to certain village officials. The two of you are out of your league and I strongly suggest that you sit this one out. Good day!
Andrea Santiago November 10, 2012 at 06:27 AM
No one is using assumed names unlike you winning10591. And there is proof the "poor victim" is a criminal & drug dealer he is a convicted felon it's public knowledge and in public records. But, thanks for the explanation of the law, attorney. We will see what happens in COURT!!!
