TUCKAHOE, N.Y. -- Tuckahoe Police ended 2011 with two assault cases and began the new year with a pick-pocket charge.
Fairview Avenue resident Joseph Canazon, 22, is due in court on Jan. 17 stemming from his arrest on Dec. 26. Lt. Ray Stabile said police responded to a 911 call at 10:54 p.m. on Dec. 26 from a woman who said she was assaulted by Canazon, her son.
The woman said her son has emotional problems and came into her room and accused her of making fun of him, police said. Canazon was taken into custody and charged with third degree assault. The woman refused medical attention.
Canazon was released the next day on $500 bail posted by the woman.
Tarhonda McGill of Main Street is also due back in Tuckahoe Village Court on Jan 17.
McGill, 29 was taken into custody on Dec. 30 at 4:28 a.m. after police said she pushed her boyfriend down a flight of steps. The boyfriend, whose name police did not release, was treated for a broken ankle he suffered in the fall, police said.
McGill was charged with third degree assault 3rd degree and given $200 bail. She was unable to make bail and was remanded to the Westchester County Jail.
The first arrest of the year was Joaquin Reyes-Salazar, 26 of Cameron Place in Tuckahoe, police said. Officers responded to the Tap House in Depot Square at the request of a female caller. The caller told police she saw Reyes-Salazar take her wallet out of her purse, police said. When officers responded they said they found the wallet in the inside pocket of Reyes-Salazar's jacket. He was charged with two counts of fourth degree larceny and one count of possession of stolen property, all felonies.
Reyes-Salazar was given $10,000 bail by Village Court, but it was determined that there was a freeze on his bail at the request of the Immigration, Customs Enforcement, officials said. Stabile said the case in the village is on hold pending the outcome of the investigation by immigration officials.
