Armed man arrested after Manchester convenience store robbery
Before police arrested Nadir Mohamed, 25, at Lake Avenue and Barry Avenue, but they first had to zap him with a stun gun when he refused to put up his hands and instead "aggressively advanced on the officers with his hands clenched inside his pockets," according to a news release.
Police said they found a folding buck knife that was in the open position inside one of his pockets. Mohamed of 480 Kimball St. also allegedly was in possession of suspected crack cocaine, heroin and a prescription pill.
The robbery happened about 9:15 a.m. at the 196 Lake Ave. store. The store clerk and a customer reported a man entered the store brandishing a large knife and demanding money. After the robber fled, 911 was called and a description of the robber provided.
Officers Fred Gillis, Brian Karoul and Tony Battistelli were quickly on the scene and saw the suspect fleeing on foot near Lake and Barry avenues, where they ultimately arrested him.
Mohamed is charged with robbery, resisting arrest and two counts of possessing a controlled drug. He is also being held on a bench warrant out of Hillsborough County Superior Court for a probation violation.
