WHITE PLAINS — Two young men were arrested last night, accused of robbing and stabbing an 19-year-old Harrison man in Delfino Park.

Police were called to the park about 10:15 p.m., after the victim flagged down a Harrison police officer on patrol nearby.

White Plains Public Safety Commissioner David Chong said the victim was in the park, which was closed at the time, when he ran into two men: Tyrell Robinson, 18, of 17 Warren Ave., Greenburgh, and Rui Ferreira, 19, of 117 S. Broadway, White Plains.

“They got into an altercation and the victim was stabbed four times in the chest and arms,” Chong said.

The victim told police the men stole an unspecified amount of money from him.

Police searched the area and, a short time later, Sgt. Keith Martin and Officers Marcus McLean and Hector Ruiz found Robinson and Ferreira, who fit the description given by the victim, near Main Stree and Eastview.

The two had blood on their clothes, Chong said.

They were questioned at Police Headquarters and charged with second-degree robbery and assault, both felonies, and a misdemeanor count of fourth-degree weapon possession.

The victim was admitted to the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla with what police described as superficial, non-life-threatening injuries.
