Wanted Manchester man arrested after police standoff

February 05. 2014 8:17AM

MANCHESTER - A man wanted for violating bail conditions was arrested Tuesday after a 90-minute standoff with police on Auburn Street.

Akim Alleyne, 23, last known address of 112 Amherst St., was wanted for failing to appear in court.

At noon on Tuesday, police along with SWAT members arrived at 402 Auburn St. , where they believed Alleyne was located. Additional SWAT members were called to the scene when Alleyne, who police believed was armed with a handgun, refused to leave the apartment.

After about 90 minutes, Alleyne peacefully surrendered, police said. Investigators did not find a handgun.

He was arrested and charged with resisting detention/arrest, as well as on the original warrant and bail condition violation.

Police also arrested two other people - a brother and sister - after police said they became loud and boisterous and refused to leave the scene.

James Seckman, 21, and Darlene Seckman, 20, who both reside at the 402 Auburn St., were walking within 15 feet of the building where police said Alleyne was hiding. The Seckmans were asked to leave the area for their and others safety.

Ultimately, Officer Joe Voveris physically escorted Darlene Seckman across the street. When he did, police said James Seckman pushed the officer and both brother and sister allegedly continued yelling and swearing.

Both were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. James Seckman also was charged with simple assault.
