PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. A New Rochelle woman driving northbound on Boston Post Road called the Pelham Manor Police Department on Sunday at 2:01 p.m. because a man tried to access her car when she slowed down to enter the Hutchinson River Parkway North.
A Pelham police officer and a Westchester County police officer responded and checked the area, but the subject was gone upon arrival.
She described the suspect as a 6-foot-tall white male who was around 50 years old with brown hair and a brown jacket, police said. The man approached her car and pulled on the door handle, which was locked, and he made some type of hand gesture. The victim then sped away and she noticed in her mirror that the subject was walking northbound on the parkway.
The Westchester County Police Department will be following up with the woman because of the ongoing incidents in New Rochelle and the town of Pelham with subjects being approached and robbed at gunpoint at train/bus stations, police said.
