Police: Outlet Fire at Lawrence Hospital 'Small'

BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – The Eastchester Fire Department put out “a small electrical fire” caused by a faulty outlet in the hallway of 5 South at Lawrence Hospital, 55 Palmer Ave., at about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Bronxville police said.

Detective Richard Anderson, spokesperson for the Bronxville Police Department, said no one was injured and there was minor damage to the hallway.

The following items also were reported by Bronxville police:

iPod theft: A theft of an iPod and navigation system from a car on Lake Avenue last Friday morning and a report of a missing license plate from a scooter in the same area less than an hour later may be related, Anderson said. An 85-year-old Bronxville man told police around 9:45 a.m. Friday that a GPS valued at $170 and iPod valued at $70 were missing from his parked car. There was no damage to the vehicle and the owner was unable to recall if the vehicle’s alarm had been activated when parked.

About 45 minutes later police were called to Morange Square by a 40-year-old Bronxville man who reported the license plate from his Vespa had been taken. There was no damage to the scooter, Anderson said.

Car accident: A 67-year-old New Rochelle woman injured her neck and chest at about 9 a.m. last Thursday after losing control of the Toyota sedan she was driving and crashing into a utility pole in the 170 block of White Plains Road. Anderson said she was taken to Lawrence Hospital for treatment.

Assault: An employee of A’Mangiare Pizza at 26 Palmer Ave. accused another of assaulting him around 8 p.m. last Thursday. Police are following up further on the complaint, Anderson said.

Suspended license: A 38-year-old White Plains woman was arrested at about 12:15 a.m. last Friday for driving with a suspended driver’s license. Officers had stopped the driver for speeding and discovered she had failed to answer a summons from Greenburgh. Her vehicle was impounded and she was given a criminal court citation, police said.

Non-injury accidents: Officers assisted on six non-injury automobile accidents last week, advising motorists to exchange personal and insurance information. They occurred at 119 Pondfield Road at 12:04 p.m. last Tuesday; 143 Parkway around 12:40 p.m. last Tuesday; 77 Pondfield around 10:25 a.m. last Wednesday; about 4 p.m. on Paxton Avenue last Thursday; about 4:30 p.m. on Cedar Street last Saturday; and around 10 a.m. Tuesday at 64 Sagamore Road.
