A man brandishing a BB-gun rifle demanded cash from the proprietor of the Healthy Choice Fruits and Vegetable store at 16 Chatsworth Avenue on Saturday, April 10 at around 6 pm, according to allegations described in a release from the Larchmont Police Department.
According to police, the suspect, Jerome R. Healy, 46, got $350 after a struggle with the proprietor, but he didn’t get far. The store owner caught up with him outside and wrestled him to the ground before Larchmont police showed up to separate the two.
The police had been alerted by several E-911 calls.
Mr. Healy was charged with second degree robbery, a felony. Bail was later set for $15,000, but Mr. Healy was still being held at the Westchester County jail on Wednesday, April 14. His next court date is April 27.
The produce store, on Chatsworth between the Boston Post Road and Addison Street, is not far from the suspect’s residence.
