Manchester police seek 'dangerous' suspect after shots fired on city street
Alfred Nyonee, 20, of 82 W. Brook St., is sought on warrants for attempted first-degree assault, but police caution the public against approaching Nyonee, who is considered armed and dangerous.
Police found a 9 mm casing at the scene and towed a parked vehicle exhibiting an apparent bullet hole.
A 36-year-old cab driver told Manchester police that a male fare assaulted and robbed her Sunday morning after she picked him up at Union and Hanover streets and was told to drive him to the Family Dollar store on Lincoln Street.
She told police that as she pulled over to the curb, the man demanded money. She said she attempted to flee the cab, but he reached over the seat and grabbed her arm to prevent her from escaping. After a brief struggle, she said, she was able to free herself and escape, yelling for help.
Police responding to a report of a man with a gun at the Family Dollar, 329 Lincoln St., at about 7:45 p.m. Friday met with a 53-year-old man who said a gun was pointed at him.
The man said he had approached the stranger outside the store and asked for money, but was refused. The victim said the man walked away in an easterly direction and he, too, walked east, but on the sidewalk about 30 to 40 feet away.
Police said a clerk from Family Dollar interceded and the man with the gun walked off. He was later found nearby and identified as Kenneth Mourtgis, 54, of 732 Harvard St. Police said Mourtgis said he pointed the gun at the victim so he would stop asking him for money. Mourtgis was charged with criminal threatening.
Police said the man who robbed the Rockland Convenience Store, 18 Rockland Ave., told the clerk that he had a gun, but did not show it during the Friday night robbery.
Police responded to the store at about 8:45 p.m., where they learned the robber had entered the store, demanding cash and claiming to have a gun. The clerk said the man pushed him from behind toward the register, demanding he open it. The robber was able to get some cash from the register and fled the store, leaving the area in a light colored van or SUV.
