Violence erupts with shooting and machete assault in Yonkers

Posted: Updated:

Violence erupted twice in a Yonkers neighborhood on Monday with a shooting and an apparent assault involving a machete.  

Both incidents happened on a stretch of Schroeder Street in the area of the Schlobohm apartments.

Yonkers police were first called to the area around 6:30 p.m. for an assault in progress in the lobby of Building #1. They say when officers arrived, they found a 22-year-old male victim who said he was attacked by a group of about five to 10 men. Police say a preliminary investigation shows that the victim may have known his attackers, and it does not appear to be a random act.

The victim told investigators one of his attackers had a machete. The victim suffered cuts to his arms, hands and legs. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives say the suspect with the machete is described as a teenage African-American male with dark skin, short afro hairstyle and wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt.

Then just a few hours later, police were called back to the same area for a report of shots fired near Building #5.

Police say when they arrived they found several bullet casings and a trail of blood, but no victim.

Detectives tell News 12 they haven't yet determined if the two incidents are related. No arrests have been made.
