Two people have been arrested after police said they assaulted a Salvation Army bell ringer at a restaurant in White Plains.
Police said the 41-year-old bell ringer, who is legally blind, was on his break and standing in line with 30-year-old Juan Rodriguez and 21-year-old Audrianna Wignal when Rodriguez accused the victim of cutting the line.
That’s when police said Rodriguez punched the victim, knocking him to the ground. He then straddled the victim and continued to hit him in the head while Wignal kicked him, police said.
Rodriguez then threw the Salvation Army Kettle at the man, hitting him in the head, police said.
