New Rochelle detectives are searching for a 70-year-old White Plains man who allegedly beat up his ex-girlfriend in a Memorial Highway parking garage Tuesday afternoon, police said.
The man grabbed his former 45-year-old New Rochelle girlfriend by the throat, choked her, ripped her dress and tore a gold chain from around her neck, Capt. Joseph Schaller said.
The woman suffered swelling to her face, but she refused medical attention, Schaller said.
The incident happened at 1:39 p.m. Tuesday. A passerby spotted it and told the suspect they were going to call the police. The ex-boyfriend then ran away, police said.
