2 men arrested after allegedly fleeing from police in Manchester
MANCHESTER - Police say one man hid in the bathroom while the other dashed out the back door, leading police to charge both men with resisting arrest after police went to the Subway at 581 Second Street on Wednesday evening.
Police say they were responding a report about a wanted man, identified as Cory Roukey, 27 of Manchester, hanging out at the sandwich shop with another man. When police approached, Roukey allegedly locked himself in the bathroom. Meanwhile his friend, later identified as Aaron Birmingham, 24, of Lebanon, fled out the back door.
Roukey did exit the bathroom after several minutes and then ran out the back door, but was apprehended a short distance away with police using a taser to subdue him. He was charged with two counts of resisting arrest as well as for the original warrant he was wanted on: conduct after an accident.
Officers at the scene had also radioed that a second man had fled the store and provided a description and two other officers saw a man of that description running behind the plaza south of Carisbrooke Place Condominiums. Police say they ordered him to stop but he initially refused. He finally stopped near Woodbury Street and was taken into custody and charged with resisting arrest or detention. Police say they discovered him in possession of a small amount of marijuana and charged him with possession of a controlled drug.
Both men are scheduled to appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on Dec. 10.
