CONCORD — Two Manchester men were arrested and charged in connection with an April gas station robbery and kidnapping, Concord Police announced Tuesday.

In the early hours of April 9, the Shell Gas Station on 24 Loudon Road became the scene of a robbery when a male suspect allegedly coerced a clerk outside, covered the victim’s face with a pillowcase, handcuffed him, and placed him in the passenger seat of the victim’s vehicle.

The suspect then returned inside to fill pillowcases with merchandise.

The clerk managed to escape and alert a passing police officer, but the suspect had fled the scene by the time law enforcement arrived.

Following a month-long investigation, Concord Police apprehended John Donnell, 35, and Luke McClintick, 28, both from Manchester, on May 7.

The pair face charges including two counts of robbery, kidnapping, and falsifying physical evidence, all classified as B felonies.

Both suspects were held on preventative detention at the Merrimack County House of Correction and underwent video arraignment on May 8 at the 6th Circuit Court-Concord District Division.

The investigation is ongoing, and Concord Police urge anyone with information to contact the Criminal Investigations Division at 603-225-8600.
