    Several officers began removing the six men after the bouncer asked them to leave the bar for the evening.

    Two brothers, later identified as Joshua Heredia, 25, and Chasrick Heredia, 24, both of Manchester, appeared agitated and refused to leave the premise outside of the bar, police said.

    Another man, identified by police as Jeff Taylor, 24, of Manchester, began yelling at the officers while Chasrick Heredia while another man, identified by police as Jose Ortiz De La Cruz, 25, of Londonderry, began pushing one another and arguing about whether or not they should leave.

    The group of men moved into the middle of Hanover Street, allegedly yelling and pushing one another. The officers tried unsuccessfully to get them to leave. The men allegedly refused, so Officer Michael Roscoe Jr. attempted to place Chasrick Heredia into custody while several of his friends started to pull him away from Officer Roscoe.

    Officer Nathan Harrington stepped in to assist Officer Roscoe, transitioning Chasrick Heredia to the ground. Officer Canada Stewart was also helping with the arrest when Joshua Heredia began kicking and punching both Officer Roscoe and Officer Stewart.

    Officer Roscoe stood up and began defending himself against the attack. He approached Joshua Heredia while several men surrounded the officer and repeatedly attacked him.
