Police: Woman molested in Yonkers
Security officials at the Yonkers Raceway are on high alert after police say a woman was sexually molested last week.
Yonkers police officials say the incident happened March 26 after the woman left the Empire City Casino and a man began to forcibly kiss and fondle her after following the woman in the casino's parking lot.
Local residents say the alleged incident renews concern about the lack of armed security on the raceway property.
Yonkers police confirm they are looking for the suspect but they are not in charge of security at the raceway, and state police officers were pulled out last year.
City spokesman David Simpson says the latest alleged incident illustrates why officials believe state troopers should not have been removed from the raceway.
