A 312 Bishop Ave. man was awakened by the sound of breaking glass in his bedroom around 8:40 a.m. Wednesday and found pieces of metal in the room.
Police reported that, with the help of an MTA investigation, they learned the pieces were components of a wheel assembly that had malfunctioned on a passing Amtrak train on the tracks, which run parallel to Bishop Avenue in Mamaroneck Village.
Police found steel parts and what appeared to be brake shoes strewn along the 300 block of the street. A car’s driver’s side window was also smashed and a piece of metal similar to the one the man found in his house had landed within the car.
No one was injured in the incident.
Metro North Spokesman Dan Brucker said Friday that the track was not damaged and that no Metro North equipment was involved in the incident.
An Amtrak representative could not be immediately reached for comment.
