Several of you wrote to us yesterday asking us what police helicopters were doing in the air above…Larchmont Police say a man was robbed
behind the Leonardo’s restaurant on Palmer Avenue of an undisclosed amount of cash. Two people were unloading supplies from their truck for delivery to the restaurant when they were accosted by a man with a gun.
The drivers were told to stand by the truck while a second suspect tried to steal money from the safe inside the truck, but he was unable to open it.
The perps fled eastbound. Larchmont, Westchester County, New Rochelle, Harrison and Mamaroneck Village Police as well as K-9 and a County helicopter unit searched the area for several hours but were unable to find the suspects.
The gun was later determined to be a pellet gun.
