Man Arrested After Threatening Tow Truck Operator
On September 28, 2022, Manchester Police responded to 100 West Clarke St for a report of a criminal threat.
Arriving officers spoke to a tow truck operator who told them Colonial Village contracted him to check vehicles in the parking lots for parking stickers. If the vehicles do not have one, he is authorized to tow them.
He told the officers that while doing this, a man sitting in one of the vehicles opened the door, yelled “peek-a-boo” followed by an expletive, and pointed a firearm at him. The tow operator told police he ducked behind cars to shield himself from the gun.
Through the investigation, police identified the suspect as 43-year-old Michael Kenney of Manchester. Police located Kenney, arrested and charged him with Criminal Threatening with a Deadly Weapon. Kenney was scheduled for arraignment today, 9/29/22, in Hillsborough Superior Court-North.
