  1. Corner of North & Pelham Road
    When I saw tv cameras filming the intersection of North & Pelham Road on Tuesday morning, I thought that the JN was picking up the crossing guard story. Where, all year, New Rochelle has been paying crossing guards at 18 intersections throughout the city to work a 2 hour lunch shift. Kindergarten has gone on to a full day schedule this year. Students do not leave school at lunch. There are no kids to cross.

    See the story here:

    Instead, the cameramen were filming for the recent stabbing incident reported in today’s JN.

    North Avenue: Police are investigating a fight shortly before 2 a.m. Tuesday in which both men were stabbed, suffering minor injuries. Police charged Faustino A. Vazquez-Gabriel, 26, of 25 Prospect St., New Rochelle, with second-degree felony assault later that morning. Both he and the other man wounded in the fight were treated at Sound Shore Medical Center and released.

    I can’t see how if you are “stabbed” it would only be “minor injuries”. Also, after being charged with felony assault, is it unusual to be “released”?
