Man Lets Off Steam Under Croton Falls Bridge

NORTH SALEM, N.Y. – A man under the railroad bridge on Bridge Street in Croton Falls began shouting and causing a disturbance about 10:50 p.m. Saturday, North Salem police said.

Police Officers Dennis Cullen and James DePaoli questioned the man, who said he was “just letting off some steam” while waiting for the next train to the Bronx. The officers remained in the area until the man boarded the train about 11:20 p.m.

The following incidents also were reported by North Salem police:
