Armed Robber(s) Targeting Commuters

As if a ride on the beleaguered New Haven Line wasn’t aggravating enough, commuters in various southern Westchester communities connected by that train line are being hit by a robber dressed all in black and brandishing a silver gun.

Commuters in Harrison and Mamaroneck were victimized last night, according to the Larchmont news site TheLoopNY.com.

According to Mamaroneck Village Det. Sandra DiRuzza,  at about 8 pm, a 59 year old man reported he was approached from behind on Stanley Avenue and robbed at gunpoint. The suspect demanded his (undisclosed) property and fled on foot with it. The victim called 911. He was unharmed.

In Harrison an armed robbery was reported on the South Road Bridge about 9:00 pm Thursday near the train station. Police say the same man is assumed to be involved in the two robberies last night, and possibly all of them. Harrison police say he wore a light colored bandana mask and had a silver handgun.

The man in black has previously struck in Pelham, New Rochelle and Mamaroneck, targeting people like you and me walking home from the train station.
