The victim was taken to Nyack Hospital by friends before speaking with authorities.
reading the response by the police..it makes it imperitive that all of rockland has"one police force" every time there is a incident that is serious'there is always a combinded police presence...multiple agencys responding..yet not one elected offical has the backbone to say they will propose it in rockland...so dad that they always expect us their bosses a/k/s the the taxpayers to fund the redundecy....I dont see the two running for county supervisor even addressing the issue...
if we had three people running for officein rockland we could post a picture of them..one would be holding their hands over their eyes...the other their hands over their mouth.and the third over thier ears!!!!!!!
