MANCHESTER, NH — On August 19, 2019 officers responded to 51 Penacook St. for a report of a woman jumping or falling out of a second-story window. Witnesses told police after the woman landed on the ground she got up and went to the corner of Penacook and Chestnut Streets and collapsed. Bystanders then came to her aid.

Police were able to make contact with four people inside the apartment from which she came. All four had similar stories about what happened. They told officers two Hispanic males and one Hispanic female came into the apartment all carrying guns. The intruders were yelling, telling them they were looking for someone and making threats of violence. One of the men told police he was hit with a gun.
