Kids waiting for school bus get an earful as Manchester police arrest two men
MANCHESTER - Local children waiting for the school bus were exposed to a suspect's profanities as police made an arrest Wednesday morning.
Police say they took into custody two men who'd allegedly been involved in an assault in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven on Valley Street.
Police say one of the men was seen punching a 35-year-old man in the face and the second kicked his car. The victim said he did not know either of the men involved and they both fled on foot as police approached.
Officer Robert Bifsha gave chase to one of the men who fled in the direction of Valley and Beech streets and was able to apprehend him behind 237 Bell St. where police say his profanity laced tirade was overheard by a group of children at a bus stop.
Emmanuel George, 24, was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, two counts of simple assault and violation of bail conditions.
The second man was arrested separately after being seen running on Valley Street. Police arrested Darren Dustin, 23, of Manchester, and say he also yelled profanities in front of a group of school children. He was charged with criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.
Dustin appeared in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on Thursday. Emmanuel was released on $1,000 cash bail and will appear in court on July 16th.
