Here’s a rundown on recent police incidents in Pelham:
Missing Identification, 9/6/11
7:40 a.m. Officers were dispatched to a Sixth Avenue residence for a reported domestic dispute.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with a man who was involved in an argument with his ex-wife. The man accused the woman of taking his passport, social security card, and green card.
Police said the couple had divorced a few years ago, but had reconciled during the past month and were living together. The man decided that he wanted to leave his ex-wife, but was unable to because his documents were missing. The woman, who didn’t speak English, denied possession of the property.
Domestic Disturbance, 9/5/11
11:55 a.m. Officers responded to a Second Avenue apartment building for a domestic dispute between a man and his stepson.
The argument started while the man and his son were moving furniture. During the argument, the son allegedly slammed the apartment door into his mother, knocking her to the floor, and left the scene with his sister.
The mother said she was not injured and did not need medical assistance at the scene. She also declined to press charges on her son for the damaged door.
The father refused to give a written statement, but was handed a copy of the police report.
Stolen Vehicle 9/4/11
A man arrived at police headquarters to report that his car, a tan 1995 Nissan Maxima, was stolen by an unknown person in front of 33 Fifth Avenue.
