Since the brazen robbery Tuesday night of a Larchmont father walking home from the train station, dozens of concerned and frightened families are informing each other to be aware in meetings and by email.
“He is ok although understandably traumatized,” reads one email to a group of families at the Murray Avenue School, which the victim’s child attends. The robbery was also discussed at a PTA Board meeting.
Town of Mamaroneck Police say the 45 year old Valley Road resident was approached from behind on Glenn Road at 10:20 pm Tuesday by a masked man who said he was armed with a gun. The robber told the victim to empty his pockets and hand over his backpack.
The 45 year old victim was not hurt. The robber fled on Glenn Road toward North Chatsworth Ave., according to police, with a computer, an iPhone, a Kindle reader, credit cards, personal papers and $3 cash.
The robber is described as a possibly black male, 175 lbs, wearing dark clothes and a ski mask. Town of Mamaroneck Police have stepped up surveillance of the area as detectives investigate.
