Pleasantville Police received numerous calls reporting an alleged assault Saturday afternoon.
Records indicate at approximately 3:36 p.m., bystanders reported watching a man attack a woman at the Memorial Plaza Metro North train station platform.
Police responded to the scene, detained the suspect—a 52-year-old male—and also brought the female victim to headquarters.
There, she told police she had been waiting for the train and talking on her cell phone when "a white guy approached and started to scream at me."
The woman, a 24-year-old Mount Kisco resident, said she couldn't understand what the man was saying. He then attempted to take her phone, she told police.
"He put his fingers in my eyes," she told police, before the man allegedly pushed her to the ground.
The Pleasantville Volunteer Ambulance Corps and a medic were dispatched to the scene, while the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) police were notified of the incident.
The woman was taken to Phelps Memorial Hospital for treatment.
At 4:10 p.m., Pleasantville Police reported the suspect, a Stamford, CT, resident, was turned over to MTA Police.
