Kiryas Joel, Monroe, NY - No Trick or Treating in the Village
Kiryas Joel, Monroe, NY - Must have seemed like an easy target for kids bent on mischief for Halloween - a community of peaceful Hasidim with tons of densely packed homes to smack with eggs. But the five high school students - three boys from Monroe-Woodbury and two girls from Washingtonville - who drove into Kiryas Joel with cartons of eggs got a scary surprise when angry residents stopped their car and got into an altercation with two who got out. As a crowd gathered about 9:30 p.m. at Bakertown Road and Israel Zupnick Drive, the driver hit the gas and sped away, leaving his two buddies to fend for themselves, Investigator Christopher Quick of the New York State Police said. One headed for the hills, and the other was detained until state troopers arrived. The stranded mischief makers, bruised and sore, came to the state police barracks in Monroe and got tickets for disorderly conduct, Quick said. They are due in court tomorrow morning.
