Fire Chief Intervenes to Rescue Irvington Train Station Stabbing Victim
Irvington Volunteer Fire Department Chief Chris DePaoli was driving past the Irvington Metro North train station with his two young daughters around 6:30pm Wednesday when he caught sight of a man physically assaulting a younger woman near the platform on the southbound side of the tracks. He first thought the man was trying to steal the woman’s purse until he saw that he was in fact stabbing her. He used his fire dept. radio to call into the Irvington police station just up Main Street and yelled at the man to stop. When the assailant failed to respond, DePaoli went back to his car to retrieve his daughter’s softball bat.
