Manchester woman accused of assault and violating bail conditions
Felony metal thefts
Rite Aid stores targeted
The incident happened about noon Thursday at the pizza parlor at 91 Maple St. The 35-year-old woman was inside the restaurant waiting for her order, when the clerk told her he had just seen Dennis Lajuenesse, 51, of 118 Union St., take some money out of her purse, according to police.
Both the clerk and the woman followed Lajeunesse when he left the store and confronted him about the alleged theft. Police said Lajeunesse returned $20 to the woman, who thought that was all the money he had taken.
Back inside the restaurant, however, she realized another $75 still was missing. She quickly left the store and followed Lajeunesse at a distance while calling police on her cell phone.
Officers, after gathering additional information corroborating the woman's account, arrested Lajeunesse near Clay and Beech Street, charging him with theft.
Police returned the $75, allegedly recovered from Lajeunesse, to the woman.
Police learned of the assault after receiving a call from the Elliot Hospital where Adam Macallister, address unavailable, sought medical treatment.
Macallister told police he and his girlfriend were seated in a vehicle, parked outside a Clay Street residence about 8 p.m. Thursday, when several acquaintances showed up. An argument broke out over money and a man pulled out a knife, reached through the window and cut him as he drove away.
The incident remains under investigation.
Baseball bat was weapon
Jonathan Newton, 41, who listed his address as the New Horizons shelter at 199 Manchester St., told police he was in Kalivas Park talking to a woman when her male companion became jealous and hit him with the bat.
The assault remains under investigation.
Two men sought in robbery
Eric Grondin, 27, of 140 Central St. explained to police that two men approached him and asked for a cigarette. He gave a cigarette to one of them, but the two men hovered over him as he counted some money. Suddenly, one of the men grabbed the cash from his hand and punched him in the face when he asked for it back.
Both men ran from the scene.
One of the men, who was shorter than the other, is described as white, in his late 20s with scruffy brown hair. He was wearing a dark shirt and jeans.
The second robber was a tall white man in his late 20s with short blond hair wearing a white T-shirt.
