Police arrest three after Manchester motel melee, robbery

MANCHESTER — Police arrested three people and are seeking others in a knifepoint robbery early Sunday morning of two guests in their room at a city motel.

Police said a Chester couple was returning to their fourth-floor room at the Manchester Econolodge at about 3:45 a.m. when they were approached by two women, police said.

The women and the guests became involved in an argument, which quickly escalated into a shoving match, police said.

As the women and guests tussled in the hallway, a group of men came down the corridor toward the group and pushed their way into the couple’s room. One of the men, described as a heavy-set Hispanic, wielded a knife during the confrontation.

Another intruder grabbed cash off a bathroom counter before the group took off, police said.Responding officers found the two women involved still on the scene. One, Jacquelyn Paul, 18, of Manchester, was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after police say she became loud and belligerent.

Outside the hotel, two suspects, Reccardo Burton, 20, of Manchester, and a 15-year-old city youth were arrested.

Burton also faces a cocaine charge as the result of a search after his arrest. Police said the youth matched the description of the person who took the money from the hotel room. The suspect who wielded the knife during the robbery remains at large. Police have asked that anyone with information about the incident call Manchester Police at 668-8711 or the Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040.
