DUEL WITH AUTO THIEVES.

The New York Times
April 24, 1914


Dodge Police Bullets in Two Towns, Then Abandon Car.

Special to The New York Times.

WHITE PLAINS, N. Y., April 23.—Two automobile thieves engaged in a revolver duel with the police of White Plains and Harrison to-day and after escaping abandoned a car they had stolen and escaped into Connecticut.  The stolen car—the second taken in midday in a fortnight—was owned by Dr. Edson Card, of Fisher Avenue.

Two well-dressed young men jumped into the car, put on full speed and dashed past policemen in the village, turned into a side street and escaped to Harrison.  Policemen Frittiti and Marron fired at them and the thieves returned the fire and speeded on.

Captain Monroe was told by phone to watch for the thieves at Harrison.  He attempted to stop them, and while one was evidently wounded they laughed at the order to stop and exchanged shots with Monroe and his men.  Monroe gave chase and closed in so fast with his motor cycle that the thieves abandoned the car at Allendale Farm and ran across the fields.
