New Rochelle Talk reported
A New Rochelle Police vehicle was repeatedly vandalized in plain sight on a busy downtown street the other night. A group of men standing outside a bar on North Avenue repeatedly struck the vehicle, spit on the door handles and windows; one suspect used a knife to repeatedly gouge the side of the police vehicle as well as the side of a second city vehicle parked nearby.
New Rochelle Police are on the lookout for a male/black, age 25 to 35, who, along with several other men, also black, significantly damaged a police vehicle. The men took turns striking the vehicle over a 30 minute period. The incident took place just one block from the crowded New Roc City movie multiplex and entertainment center.
“Our Quality of Life Task Force was conducting an SLA investigation of Chuggers Sports Bar,” said New Rochelle Police Captain Cosmo Costa. “When Officers returned to their vehicles they observed that the passenger side of both vehicles had been damaged, apparently with a sharp object.”
“The Quality of Life Task Force is a multi-jurisdictional organization that is comprised of police officers, fire fighters, building inspectors, county health officials and agents from the State Liquor Authority,” said Paul Vacca, Director of the New Rochelle Building Bureau. Vacca said they visit locations where the public assembles to make sure the building is in compliance with health and safety ordinances and laws.
