Man Arrested After Dispute With Mom In Dobbs Ferry

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – A 21-year-old Yonkers man was arrested Tuesday, Aug. 21, after an argument with his mother, a 44-year-old Dobbs Ferry resident, police said.

The man was visiting his younger sister, who was moving to college that day, and became combative after their mother told him he couldn’t go with them because there was not enough room in the car, Dobbs Ferry police said.

The woman called the police after her son refused to leave. Police arrived and asked him to leave, and the man became combative with the police, according to the report. The man was charged with disorderly conduct, a violation; and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor.

The following items also were reported by Dobbs Ferry police:

Cellphone Theft: A female Dobbs Ferry resident reported that her boyfriend, also of Dobbs Ferry, stole her cellphone about 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 20. The woman told police the man showed up at her work and asked to use her phone. He then ran away with it and posted items on her Facebook page without her permission, police said.
