MANCHESTER, NH – Two men were arrested early Wednesday morning after behaving badly in front of school kids waiting for their bus, among other offenses. Emmanuel George, 24, and Darren Dustin, 23, were both charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, which began with a disturbance at the 7-Eleven on Valley Street.
According to a police narrative, Manchester Patrol Officers Robert Bifsha and Ryan Brandreth were called to the area of Beech Street and Hayward Street at 6 a.m. on June 3 for a report of two men yelling and screaming. Approximately 25 minutes later, Officer Brandreth located three men standing near a vehicle in the parking lot of 7-Eleven on Valley Street.
Officer Brandreth witnessed one of the men, later identified as George, punching another man. Both George and another man, later identified as Dustin, fled on foot as the officer arrived.
The third man, victim Andrew Emanuel, 35, told police that he had stopped at the store and engaged in an unprovoked confrontation with the two men. He told police he did not know either man prior to the confrontation. Dustin allegedly kicked Emanuel’s vehicle, a 2001 Mercedes, for an unknown reason while George punched him in the face. Emanuel suffered minor injury to his nose and face from the punch but he refused medical treatment. His vehicle sustained minor damage from being kicked.
Officer Bifsha noted that George ran toward Valley Street, so he parked his cruiser on Bell Street and exited his car. While doing so, he yelled to George to stop running but George kept running toward the rear of 237 Bell St. Officer Bifsha ran toward the other side of the building to cut him off and saw George jump a fence and run toward him. George, knowing he had been caught, conceded and was taken into custody. Officer Brandreth told the officer that he witnessed George punching another male moments before he fled on foot.
However, George allegedly yelled a “profanity-laced tirade” while waiting for the transport wagon. He remained uncooperative throughout the booking process and allegedly kicked one of the officers as he was placed into the transport wagon. Several young children were in the area waiting for their morning school bus, so George was also charged with disorderly conduct in addition to resisting arrest/detention, 2 counts simple assault and violation of bail conditions.
Meanwhile, Dustin, who had fled on foot also, was spotted running in the area of Cremeland on Valley Street. Officer Brandreth caught up to Dustin and placed him into custody. Dustin remained uncooperative during the arrest process and also began yelling multiple profanities in front of young children as they waited for their school bus. He was charged with criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.
Dustin appeared in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on June 4, 2015. Emmanuel was released on $1,000 cash/surety bail and will appear in court on July 16..
