Three family members, including a teenage son, were arrested following an alleged assault with a chain on North Broadway.
On Jan. 9 at 10:15 p.m., police received numerous calls for a dispute underway in front of 21 North Broadway. Officers reported a physical fight had taken place with all parties still at the scene. Everyone was taken to headquarters for further investigation.
Statements were taken from the victim who was injured when he was apparently struck by a chain.
Tarrytown Police Lieutenant William Herguth said the couple, along with their son, apparently struck the man several times around the neck and head with the chain. Herguth described the chain as a small chain with small links. “He had several marks on the side of his face, nothing serious,” he said. “They apparently had words in the past.”
The defendants are a married couple, Julio Quechol, 41, and Maria Cuautle, 34, both of Main Street, charged with third degree assault.
Their 14-year-old son was also arrested for allegedly participating in the assault and was transported to Woodfield Cottage juvenile detention center in Valhalla for appearance in Westchester County family court in the morning.
The parents were held in village lock-up for arraignment and issuance by the Judge of an order of protection.
