Anyone Missing a White Dog?

A man later contacted headquarters stating he brought the dog to the Yonkers speciality animal center (914-457-4000) for treatment. The animal had no tags on collar and no GPS chip. The cost of treatment would reportedly be upwards of $1,500. Caller said they would pay and keep dog if no one claims it.

Officer on scene asked Tarrytown Volunteer Ambulance Corps to expedite response. Detective arrived to investigate. A 28-year-old was struck in the crosswalk and apparently knocked down by a car, bumping the back of his head. The victim was taken to Westchester Medical Center.

On Oct. 23 came a second report of a pedestrian struck at 10:40 a.m. on North Broadway in front of Warner Library. Officer on scene requested Tarrytown Volunteer Ambulance for a pedestrian, age 25, who had pain in his arm. Lieutenant William Herguth did not know if the person was in the crosswalk or not, but no charges were filed and the incident was “minor in nature,” he said. The victim reportedly refused medical attention at the scene.

Not Text but GPS

She did so and the man reportedly said to her, “you are going to die if you continue to do that.” She did not know the man but thought he was talking about the fact that she was entering an address into her GPS device at the traffic light. She wished to have incident noted for the record.
Tenant vs. Landlord
