Dover man accused in two robberies


OKIEMUTE OMATIE 

 UPDATED:  ROCHESTER - Okiemute Omatie, 19, of Dover, charged with robbing a woman last month at The Rochester Residence Inn, is now accused of assaulting and robbing another man later that same night in Dover.

 
Okiemute Omatie of 28 Fifth St., Dover, was arrested Tuesday afternoon on a warrrant charging him with robbery, a class B felony, in connection with the Father's Day robbery at the inn.

In that case, shortly after the incident, police arrested  Tasha Loaiza, 21, of Rochester and charged her with robbery as well.

Now, Omatie is charged with another robbery that happened at 11:13 p.m. on June 15 at a Locust Street residence.  Police said a man reported two men had "tasered" and kicked him after he let them into his apartment.  The two men then stole several items, including a laptop computer and a tablet style computer.

The injured man was treated at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital for minor injuries and then released.

The next day, Dover police arrested Phillip Swanson and charged him in connection with the robbery.  Ultimately, Dover police detectives said they linked Omatie to it as well an obtained a warrant for his arrest.

On Teusday, Omatie was arrested in Somersworth on charges stemming from The Rochester Residence Inn robbery. In that case, a  woman was robbed about 10:30 a.m. on Father's Day while she was at the inn located at 182 Milton Road.  She told police she let a woman she knows into her room and a man she didn't know walked in behind her.

The man, who Rochester police said was Omatie, allegedly pulled out a knife, and both he and Loaiza  threatened the woman while asking for drugs and money.  

 Loaiza  is accused of stealing a tablet computer and money.  

Omatie is being held on $10,000 cash bail in the Rochester case pending arraignment Wednesday in 7th Circuit Court, Rochester District Division.  His arraignment in the Dover case is also to take place today.
