TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – A Cortlandt Manor woman told police she was almost sexually assaulted after her dinner companion stranded her at a Tarrytown restaurant and she accepted a ride from a stranger.

Sleepy Hollow police notified Tarrytown police on Sunday, June 24, that they had found a distraught, intoxicated woman in front of their police headquarters around 8 a.m. The woman told police she had been at the Striped Bass restaurant in Tarrytown the night before with her child's father.

The woman said she got into an argument with the man, who then left without her. Another man approached her and offered a ride to her Cortlandt Manor home, police said. Once in the car, the woman reported, the man drove to a parking lot and tried to sexually assault her.
