Police searching for man accused of punching 67-year-old who defended waitress at NH diner
MANCHESTER — Police are searching for a man who allegedly punched and injured another man at a diner in Manchester.
Officers responded to the Red Arrow Diner on Lowell Street at about 12:40 a.m. on Feb. 24 to a report of a physical altercation. Upon arrival, police found a 67-year-old man with injuries to his face and lip resulting from a fight with another man who fled the scene.
Police said the man who fled allegedly made several disparaging remarks toward one of the diner's waitresses, prompting the 67-year-old man to intervene. That is when the suspect allegedly punched the man in the face.
Witnesses described the man as white, approximately 6 feet tall, with a muscular build, crew cut-style haircut and multiple tattoos on each arm. Witnesses believed he was wearing a gray Abercrombie and Fitch T-shirt with dark colored jeans and light brown shoes, police said.
Police also believe he may go by the name of "Jesse," according to witnesses who said the man is a frequent customer of the diner.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Detective Lou Krawczyk at 603-792-5517.
