WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - A man from Yonkers was arrested in Scarsdale after allegedly trespassing in a Chesterfield Road resident’s garage.
At approximately 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, police were dispatched to the home, where the homeowner reported to responding officers that an unknown, black male wearing a beige coat, dark backpack and socks with open-toe sandals was standing in his garage peering at his bicycles and car.
While canvassing the area, officers identified a Hispanic male - later identified as 26-year-old Danlis Grullon - who was walking on Fox Meadow Road, matching that description. While speaking with police, Grullon stated that he worked in White Plains and was walking to meet his wife, who allegedly works at 2 Overhill Road.
According to the homeowner, who positively identified Grullon as the man who was in his garage, he saw Grullon walking past his home, taking pictures of a car from the edge of the property before walking into an open garage. When approached by the resident, Grullon responded by saying “where is Chesterfield Road,” before walking away toward Oak Lane.
After being positively identified by the homeowner, Grullon was placed under arrest and processed on a misdemeanor charge of second-degree criminal trespassing. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court later this month.
