Two Burglaries in Bronxville Last Week PDF Print Email


By Staff

Nov. 27, 2019: There were two burglaries in Bronxville last week.

The first one was on November 17 on Elmrock Road. The second was on November 22 on Prescott Avenue on the Hilltop.

According to Bronxville Chief of Police Christopher Satriale, the incidents had similarities. Both homes are under construction. The mode of entry in both homes was the same - - the burglars used a ladder to go in through a second-floor window.

No one was home during the Elmrock incident and jewelry was stolen. The Prescott house was occupied at the time. The person at home heard glass break and then heard two men speaking in Spanish. She screamed, and the burglars fled.

According to Chief Satriale, the burglaries are also similar to some taking place in Connecticut.

The Bronxville Police are working hard to identify the perpetrators. They are reviewing video footage, DNA evidence is being analyzed and they are working with police in Connecticut.

Chief Satriale also advised homeowners of the following:

1) Set the alarm when you leave home
2) If you have cameras, turn them on
3) Report anything suspicious to the police
4) If you are considering upgrading your alarm system, pick one with cameras. They are a deterrent.
5) Finally, if you live in the vicinities of the incidents and have video footage that might be useful, please let the police know.

Additionally, a Hilltop resident who upgraded their home security system a while back reported that, according to the security company that installed their system, the most important deterrents to break-ins are cameras and outdoor lighting.

Another resident suggested that if you are going away, let a neighbor know so they can look out for suspicious activity.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
