In response, we followed up with the Scarsdale Police to inquire about their investigation and here is what we learned from Detective Thomas J. Altizio.  “We have reviewed all of the videos and conducted several interviews with the victims. We have identified some of the individuals involved, and Detectives are out working on the case right now. It is an active investigation that we are working with the MTA Police on, and if there are any notable developments or arrests I will keep you updated.”
