NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- As I was walking my dog around the lakes in Huguenot Park last Wednesday at about ten-thirty in the morning, I was verbally accosted and then menaced by “Angel”, a New Rochelle High School student. I reported the incident to officials at the school. When they declined to take action, I called the police to make a report. By the time police arrived, the group of students which included Angel had left. The school did not send a security guard to the scene.
