Village of Mamaroneck Police say a 15 year old boy was assaulted on Andrew Street in Mamaroneck Wednesday, and the apprehension of suspects temporarily suspended train service.
Officers responded to a 911 call at the upper ramp of the Mamaroneck Train Station (southbound side.) While at the train station, officers determined the assault had occurred on Andrew Street.
As an officer was speaking with the mother of the victim, the officer observed several possible suspects flee the location in multiple directions, some via the northbound train tracks. Metro North was notified to temporarily suspend train service. Town of Mamaroneck Police and Westchester County Aviation Unit both responded to assist.
Police say the victim was walking on Andrew Street when he was approached by a large group (approximately 15 teenagers) unknown to him. The group surrounded the victim, assaulted him and then took his cell phone. The teen sustained minor injuries.
Several suspects from New Rochelle have been detained and charges are being determined pending further investigation.
