GREENBURGH, N.Y. - Greenburgh police arrested one suspect and are in pursuit of another that reportedly robbed and assaulted a cab driver in Elmsford early on Friday morning.
Shortly before 3 a.m. on Friday, March 3, police were dispatched to a Mobil station on Saw Mill River Road, where the driver alleged that she had been robbed by two passengers she had picked up in Yonkers.
