WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Four people who were slashed during an attack on Saturday, Sept. 10 at the Coachman Family Center in downtown White Plains are not cooperating with police.
The attack occurred at 9:30 p.m. on East Post Road, inside the courtyard of the Coachman Family Center, which serves as temporary housing for those in need, said Kieran O'Leary, public information officer for the Westcheter County Police Department.
During the attack, three males that were not staying at the facility, made their way into the courtyard and began an argument with several residents of the temporary hotel. When the fight escalated, the males pulled out weapons and slashed three men and one woman ranging in age from 16- to 46-years-old, O'Leary said.
"The police are having a hard time making any headway in the case because the victims are not coopering," O'Leary said. "They don't remember anything and aren't giving up a single piece of information."
The victims wounds ranged from minor slashes to stab wounds. All were treated at a local hospital and released, he added.
Because the facility, which has 24-hour security, is run by Westchester County, police have increased patrols in the area in an effort to find the attackers, O'Leary said.
