Manchester man arrested in gun threat
MANCHESTER - A 26-year-old man is under arrest, accused of threatening another man with a gun in an April 30 incident on Wilson Street.
Daniel Cruzado-Martinez, 26, who listed his address as the New Horizons shelter at 199 Manchester St., is accused of threatening Ryan Bissonnette, 34, no current address, with a gun.
Lt. Maureen Tessier said Cruzado-Martinez went to 200 Wilson St., where he previously lived, looking for a pair of sandals.
At the time, Bissonnette was living in the first-floor apartment. He heard a noise and looked outside to see Cruzado-Martinez with a woman, yelling that he wanted his sandals. Police said Cruzado-Martinez then pulled out a gun and threatened to shoot Bissonnette.
About a week later, Bissonnette was threatened again by a man with a gun, this time allegedly by Christian Edwards, 21, of 558 Chestnut St.
Police said that incident also happened at the Wilson Street building, although this time Bissonnette was no longer living there but had returned with another woman who wanted to collect some of her property. Edwards was there at the time and allegedly threatened him.
Cruzado-Martinez is also charged with theft in connection with an April 28 incident at the Family Dollar store at 329 Lincoln St. Police said he punched a clerk in the face. He and the woman were inside when the woman left with a bag of items without paying for them, police said.
The clerk ran out after the woman and she dropped the bag, according to police. The clerk picked up the bag and went back into the store when Cruzado-Martinez allegedly punched him in the face and fled.
Police said Cruzado-Martinez is also implicated in a number of other threats and an assault that have occurred in the same Wilson Street neighborhood over the past couple of weeks. Police continue to investigate and have yet to find the gun used in the threat.
