Pennsylvania man beaten, robbed in Manchester
The visitor from Pennsylvania had taken money out of an automatic teller machine on Manchester's West Side and had placed the cash in his wallet which he put in his pants pocket.
But, police say, the robber immediately appeared and jumped into the passenger seat of the rented Ford sedan, ordering the man to return to the ATM and take out more money.
The robber took the proceeds of the second withdrawal and grabbed the man's cell phone.
The victim was then ordered to drive the car to the rear of a building in the area and he was beaten unconscious.
The robber grabbed the man's wallet containing the money from the first withdrawal and took off.
The Pennsylvania visitor was unfamiliar with the area, but told police the assault took place in the vicinity of the Econolodge Hotel, which is located on West Hartford Street, near the Interstate 293 overpass and the confluence of the Merrimack and Piscataquog rivers.
Police say the victim described his attacker as a black male with short black hair and wearing a black jacket.
The victim's rental car was a 2013 silver Ford Taurus with Maryland license tags. He suffered head and face injuries during the beating.

Earlier Sunday night, police investigated another ATM robbery, arresting Nathan Lesage, 19, of Rimmon Street on charges that he lured a relative and her teenaged daughter to a restaurant, then pulled a knife and ordered them to go to an ATM and withdraw cash.
Police reported the victims said that Lesage set up the meeting on Facebook ,then threatened to kill the 15-year-old girl if his demands weren't met.
The victims flagged down a police officer on Amory Street at about 9 p.m. Sunday.
Lesage was arrested a short time later on Dubuque Street and charged with kidnapping and robbery.
