MANCHESTER - Four men are charged with sexually assaulting and robbing a 26-year-old city woman inside a Comfort Inn hotel room early Tuesday.

The alleged attacks at the 298 Queen City Ave. hotel spanned more than five hours - during which two of the men forcibly raped the woman while all four sexually assaulted her, then threatened her and stole her money to keep her from leaving, police allege.

She eventually escaped and called police after the men fell asleep, police said. "This was a particularly violent, pre-meditated act. One of them invited her there with the intent of sexually assaulting her," Capt. Nick Willard said. "It was a brutal and terrifying crime."

The woman was taken to Catholic Medical Center where she was being treated this morning, he said.

Two of those charged are Manchester residents, one lives in Nashua and the fourth lives in Alexandria, Va.

Police found the woman in the front lobby when they arrived about 4:40 a.m. Tuesday.

They detained two of the alleged assailants as they tried to drive from the parking lot. Two others were taken into custody inside the hotel room. They surrendered after police threatened to deploy a canine team, police allege.

The alleged victim was invited to the hotel by Leroy Kear, 24, of Manchester, with whom she is acquainted. The woman said she expected to attend a party with a small group of people, including women, police said.

She arrived about 11 p.m. to find only Kear and three other men present: Abdul Kabia, 29, of Nashua; Abdulai Barrie, 31, of Alexandria, Va.; and Dorbor Nyonee, 23, of Manchester. The men allegedly began groping her, police said.

The woman ran inside the bathroom and locked the door behiind her. But Nyonee and Barrie broke through the door and allegedly forcibly raped her and sexually assaulted her inside the bathroom, police said.

Nyonee and Barrie are charged with felonious sexual assault and aggravated felonious sexual assault. Nyonee also is charged with violation of bail conditions, violation of federal probation and is being held on a federal probation warrant.

Kear is charged with felonious sexual assault, theft and violation of bail conditions. Kabia is charged with felonious sexual assault.

The four were being booked at Manchester police headquarters Tuesday morning; bail had not immediately been set.

They are expected to be arraigned Tuesday afternoon in Manchester District Court.
