The Hartsdale worker said he then squared off against Coelho, "having heard enough of his verbal abuse." Shortly thereafter, both men started pushing each other, and both fell to the ground.

Details Emerge About Halloween Burglary in Fox Meadow Plus a Pot Factory on Ardsley Road

fire-hydrantNew details have emerged in the previously reported Kensington Road burglary from Halloween night. According to the police report, the homeowner and his wife were sleeping their second floor bedroom when they were awakened by an intruder around 12:05 a.m., Nov. 1. The intruder – described as a tall, thin man, approximately 6'3"tall and 150-170 pounds and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt strung closed over his face – was standing by the master bathroom door, the couple said. The homeowner's wife first thought the man was her teenage son and called out to him, but the man did not answer. The man allegedly paused and walked into the master bathroom. The wife woke up her husband, alerting him that someone was in the house. The man then walked out of the bathroom and back into the hallway, closing the master bedroom door behind him. The husband jumped out of bed, opened the door to the hallway and heard a loud bang, like a slamming door, downstairs. The wife called 911 and waited upstairs for patrol. When patrol arrived, they searched the house in case any suspects were still inside. They found a rear glass door to be broken and forced open. This door was determined to be both the entry and exit points of the suspect. The couple said they saw the man holding a large rectangular object in his hand, which was later determined to be a digital camera found on the floor by the front door. The couple said the digital camera had been located in a second-floor office, and it must have been dropped by the suspect as he was trying to leave the house. The couple's housekeeper of six years and the couple's two sons were also home at the time of the break-in. The housekeeper said she was sleeping in her third-floor bedroom when she was awaked by the noise of a man entering her room and touching closet doors around midnight. Her description of the man matched the couple's description, except she said the man appeared to be holding a large, black knife in his right hand. She said she could see the man because a closet light was on in the room. She said the man asked her if anyone else was in the house, and she said everyone else was downstairs. The man then asked the housekeeper for money. She replied that she did not have any, and the man left her room. On his way out the door, he said, "Happy Halloween; I'm Joe's friend." The man shut the housekeeper's bedroom door upon leaving. Following an investigation of their house, the couple reported that several items had been stolen. The nature of the items has remained confidential, pending the investigation. Video surveillance of the house recorded a second man, wearing a light-colored sweatshirt pulled closed over his face, standing at the front porch of the house at approximately 11:38 p.m. The husband's platinum wedding band was found under a bench near the broken glass door. A canvass of the area surrounding the house revealed a baggie containing small plastic tubes lying in the driveway. Canine units indicated a scent on the baggie might be related to the suspects; so police vouchered it as evidence. DNA swabs were taken for testing. The investigation is ongoing.

Ardmore Road Burglary
While conducting a dark house check of an Ardmore Road house, police noticed signs of forced entry, with extensive damage to a rear door and doorframe Nov. 5. Police entered the house and saw items in disarray. The homeowner was out of town at the time. An investigation determined three upstairs bedrooms were entered.

The next day, the construction foreman reported his crew could not access the sewer pipes beneath the street because the woman parked her car on top of the steel plates that covered the ditch containing the pipes.
