Police Investigate Ongoing Harassment Case

LEWISBORO, N.Y. –  Police are investigating a harassment complaint from residents on Lake Kitchiwan Drive who said they are the target of ongoing criminal mischief from neighbors and it goes back into last year.

The residents came to the police station last week and told officers that when their home was flooded last year, they were forced to park their Jeep on the road. Since then several incidences have occurred. They said they have been singled out at association meetings for parking their car on the road. In October 2011, someone left a note on the vehicle telling them to park it on their own property. On Nov. 27, they said that someone removed the lug nuts to the vehicle’s front left tire. On Jan. 10, someone threw a rock through the Jeep’s rear window.

Police told the family that they will increase patrols in the area and share all information about the case with the state police.

A neighbor and friend of the family later came to the police station and expressed outrage about what was happening and wanted to know what was being done about it. Officers told the friend that they would continue to reach out to the state police for assistance in the matter.

Police were sent to Post Office Road in Waccabuc on a criminal mischief complaint. The resident there told officers that his mailbox had been vandalized for the third time.

Police were called to Main Street in South Salem to assist the South Salem Fire Department with a forced entry. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with the physical therapist of the resident. She told them that her patient was locked inside the house and could not come to the door. The fire department knocked out a side-door window to gain access and the resident was found on the kitchen floor. He told first responders that he had been there for at least overnight, but was not sure exactly how long. The stove was on and was very hot. Lewisboro Volunteer Ambulance Corps transported the man to Northern Westchester Hospital. The man’s son was notified about the incident.

While performing selected traffic enforcement on Mead Street in Waccabuc, police observed a car traveling 43 mph in a 30 mph zone. Police pulled the vehicle over and interviewed the driver who admitted she had no driver’s license. The driver was issued two traffic summonses and the vehicle was impounded.

Police were called to Briar Street on the call of a missing person. Upon arrival, the mother at the home told officers that her 12-year-old son was cursing and arguing with her and she took his cell phone away as punishment. He became upset and left the residence. Police and the boy’s father checked around to locate the boy but he returned home on his own around 45 minutes later. Police tried to speak with him, but he refused. The parents planned to contact the school guidance office for some possible follow-up counseling. Police learned that the boy was upset with the living arrangements caused by his parents’ divorce.

JAN. 14

Officers responded to a domestic disturbance call on Twin Lakes Road in Waccabuc – a dispute between a father and his 18-year-old daughter. The daughter told police that her father threatened her with a wine bottle and then made inappropriate statements to her that were sexual in nature. The father had been drinking prior to the officers’ arrival. The daughter said they had an argument in the parents’ bedroom and she fell on the bed and landed on a hamburger. She pushed the hamburger in her father’s face and he picked up a wine bottle and held it in a threatening way, as if to hit her with it. Police note that there have been over 21 prior calls to this residence and all parties agree that they involve the father’s drinking. The daughter stated she is tired of it and left the home for the evening. She said she will look for her own apartment.
