GREENBURGH, N.Y. - A dispute between neighbors over the construction of a proposed home turned physical last week prior to a Greenburgh Zoning Board of Appeals meeting.
Greenburgh police said officers responded to Town Hall February 16 at 8:45 p.m. after receiving a call about a possible assault. Police determined a verbal dispute had taken place between a 58-year-old woman and Micha Marom, 60, which escalated to Marom allegedly slapping the woman across the face.
Both participants were in attendance for a case before the ZBA where Marom is requesting a variance from the town's zoning ordinance to reduce the rear yard from 28 feet to 13 feet in order to legalize the construction of a 2,800-square-foot, two-story round-shaped home at 201 South Healy Ave. at Elizabeth Street in the Edgemont section of town.
Police said they have been called at least 10 times to the site since last year regarding harassment and vandalism complaints between neighbors.
Marom, a resident of Baldwin, N.Y., was charged with harassment in the second degree, a violation. He was arraigned in Greenburgh Town Court and released. He is scheduled to return to court March 16.
The female victim was treated at the scene by Greenburgh Police EMS and did not require any further medical attention.
