NORTH SALEM, N.Y. – An elderly woman walking along North Salem's June Road on Thursday afternoon who took a tumble and had difficulty getting up was helped by members of the Croton Falls Fire Department and the North Salem Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
North Salem Police contacted the woman's son, who was out searching for his mother. Police took him to the site, police said.
The son explained that his mother is suffering from early stage Alzheimer’s disease, police said. She declined to be taken by ambulance to the hospital, but the son said he would take her to her own doctor for an evaluation.
The North Salem Police also reported the following incident:
Earlier that day, Officer Michael Castellano Jr. responded to a report that a young man ran through a Sugar Hill Road property, climbed into a black Lincoln Continental and drove away hastily.
