A similar manhunt took place in Harrison Wednesday evening, also without success. No confirmation of these or other activities yet from the Rye PD.
Beginning at approximately 9:30pm Thursday evening, Rye Police were driving at high speeds through Bradford Park and the southern part of Rye and a police helicopter with a searchlight was flying overhead. Neighbors reported that police went to stop a man on the Boston Post Road.
According to reports, the man, dressed in black clothes, fled into the yard of 301 Boston Post Road. Neighborhood residents were asked to stay indoors after interfering with the infrared heat detection system carried by the helicopter being used for the manhunt. At least one helicopter was still airborne at 11:30pm.
