Riverside Man Jumped By Three People Sunday Night


Three men jumped a Riverside man outside his mobile home just before 10 p.m. Sunday and beat him with a stick, according to Southampton Town Police.

The victim, who lives off Flanders Road, suffered cuts to his face, head, neck and arms, and had to be transported by Flanders-Northampton Volunteer Ambulance to the Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead.

The man later told detectives that he heard someone banging outside his home and went outside to investigate the noise when three men who he did not recognize attacked him, unprovoked, according to authorities.

The men did not steal any of the victim’s possessions, police said. They also did not say who called 911.

Detectives are investigating the incident.

Assault Outside Store

Someone called 911 after they saw four men beat up another man in front of the 7-Eleven store on Flanders Road on April 16.

The unidentified victim was attacked at about 11:40 p.m. and later taken to the Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead for treatment of minor injuries, according to Southampton Town Police. He did not say if he recognized his assailants, police said.

The person who alerted authorities was inside the convenience store at the time of the attack, authorities said.

Detectives are investigating the incident.

Debit Card Stolen

A Riverhead man told Southampton Town Police that someone tried to purchase $650 worth of home goods using his debit card on April 22.

The victim told authorities that he thought his wallet fell out of his pocket earlier that day in the Cancos Tile parking lot on County Road 39 in Southampton. Later that day, someone tried using one of the man’s credit cards to make a purchase at The Home Depot in Shirley.

Bank officials alerted the man of the attempted transaction and, in turn, he notified police.

The incident is being investigated by police.

Furniture Goes Missing

A North Haven woman contacted police after more than $1,000 worth of furniture, including an antique table and a set of wicker chairs, were stolen from outside her rental home between April 10 and April 16.

The woman explained to Southampton Town Police that she evicted tenants from her Stock Farm Lane home on April 16 and then returned the next day to discover that the items were gone. The victim said the thieves stole an antique coffee table worth $550, two wicker chairs worth $250 combined and a wicker love seat also valued at $250.

Detectives, who are still investigating the theft this week, would not say if they intend on interviewing the former tenants and also declined to identify them.
