Two New Hampshire men were arrested for their involvement in an early morning disturbance on the streets of Keene last week.
According to local news outlet The Sentinel, police responded to a 911 call at around 1 a.m. on the morning of March 29. The source states that two individuals driving a Ford Taurus got into a verbal altercation with a group of Keene State University students at the intersection of Blake and Winchester streets.
During the argument, 25-year-old Suniel Tahil-Ranani, the man behind the wheel, got out of the vehicle and began waving a handgun around in the direction of the victims. His passenger, Austin Flowe, brandished a set of metallic knuckles he had on his fist and threatened to hurt at least one of the students.
The two suspects fled the scene of the crime before police showed up, but law enforcement officials ultimately caught up with them on Washington Street, where they identified a handgun located in the center console of the car. They confiscated the weapon and then searched Flowe for the metallic knuckles, which they also found.
Tahil-Ranani has been charged with two counts of reckless conduct and Flowe faces one misdemeanor count of criminal threatening and carrying and/or selling weapons. They were arraigned on March 29 and are being held for $10,000 and $2,500 cash bail, respectively. There is a probable cause hearing for Tahil-Ranani scheduled on April 3 and Flowe will have a lawyer appointed at the city's court on April 4.
