Barefoot man chases down, stops car full of elderly women
MANCHESTER — A barefoot man who told police he was at war with them was arrested Wednesday night after he chased after a car full of elderly women, forcing it to a stop in the middle of Union Street.
Damaka Opgah, 28, of 346 Spruce St., was arrested after he knelt down in front of the car, yelled at the women inside, whom he did not know, and then refused to move when an officer arrived, police said.
Patrol Officer Raymond Youngs saw the barefoot Opgah running north on Union Street, chasing after the car and forcing it to stop.
Opgah allegedly told the officers to continue “Tasing” him because it had little to no effect on him.
Opgah continued to be combative and boisterous through the booking process at the police station.
The driver and the unidentified passengers left the area shortly after Opgah was arrested.
