Manchester robbery thwarted by AMT Market clerk
MANCHESTER - Abdul Chaudrey, a store clerk at AMT Market on Massabesic Street, was able to fight off a would-be robber by raising a large stick over his head and chasing after the man.
A few moments later, the robber allegedly returned to the store's vicinity but had changed his clothes. The clerk identified him anyway, and police apprehended the man who was later identified as 34-year-old Leo Rochon of Manchester.
Rochon was charged with attempted robbery and falsifying physical evidence. He is set to appear before the 9th circuit court in Manchester Wednesday morning.
