Six Arrested After 'Very Disturbing Attack'

Two Tarrytown, three Sleepy Hollow, and one Ossining resident have been charged with gang assault after the alleged attack of a 41-year-old man in early October.

It was described as a "very disturbing" attack by Lieutenant Anthony Bueti, and Sleepy Hollow Police Chief Gregory Camp said detectives have been at work ever since to bring the suspects of a gang assault to justice.

According to Camp:

On October 6, 2012 at about 3:30 am a 41-year-old male walked into police headquarters and reported that he had been assaulted at a bar on the corner of Beekman Avenue and Barnhardt Avenue. An ambulance was called and transported the victim to the hospital for injuries sustained in the assault. Officers attempted to locate suspects. An investigation was started and the following individuals have been arrested and charged with Gang Assault in the Second Degree:

  • Oscar Segarra, a 26-year-old residing on S. Washington St., Tarrytown
  • Mario Guzman, a 29-year-old residing at Franklin Courts, Tarrytown
  • Hipolito Guzman, a 24-year-old residing on College Ave., Sleepy Hollow
  • Paola Herrera, 38 years old, residing on Depeyster St., Sleepy Hollow
  • Erlin Almonte, 30 years old, residing on Dale Ave., Ossining
  • Manuel Salazar, 23 years old, residing on College Ave., Sleepy Hollow

Camp noted it has been a complicated process to identify, locate and arrest so many people. He had been unable to provide more case details earlier so as not to impede the ongoing investigation.

To "Andrea" and "Bill", both whom are certsinly using assumed names, it is quite apparent that you both have a direct relationship with the defendants in this case. I however do not have any kind of relationship with any of the parties involved. What I will say is that I do not and will not tolerate corruption and deceit on any level, and I will call out anybody who attempts to use their influence to interfere with the judicial process. These arrests should have been made weeks ago, and it took a command decision and maybe a little pressure to get it done. Also, I will caution anybody who wishes to make defamatory remarks towards anybody else without having supporting facts to prove it. To say that somebody is using their son to sell drugs is a strong statement and without proof, could result in severe consequences. As to my statements, I can provide supporting facts for everything that I say, including proof of the direct or indirect relationship of some of these defendants to certain village officials. The two of you are out of your league and I strongly suggest that you sit this one out. Good day!

No one is using assumed names unlike you winning10591. And there is proof the "poor victim" is a criminal & drug dealer he is a convicted felon it's public knowledge and in public records. But, thanks for the explanation of the law, attorney. We will see what happens in COURT!!!
