LANGDON — One man is under arrest and police are searching for another man and a woman they say were involved in a home invasion beating that left a Langdon man bloodied and battered.

“He had what appeared to be life-threatening injuries,” New Hampshire State Police detective Michael McLaughlin said of the victim in the home invasion.

Under arrest for the Sept. 8 assault is Lenny Alvarez, 21, of Manchester. Still wanted are Willem Wonsang, 44, and Tiffany Dyer, 39, both from Manchester.

McLaughlin said that Alvarez was arrested in Manchester on Friday afternoon, while Dyer and Wonsang are still at large.

Police were called to a home in Langdon on Sept. 8 after a witness to the attack called 911, he said.

The victim was beaten and injured when police arrived, though he did not initially speak to officers. The case did not seem to make sense at first, McLaughlin said.

“Why would these people drive all the way from Manchester to Langdon?” McLaughlin said of the initial speculation.

Finally it was learned that Dyer had been in a relationship with the alleged victim, McLaughlin said.

The pair recently went through a bad break up, McLaughlin said, and that resulted in the beating at the victim’s Langdon home earlier this month.

“They had a falling out, and there was a confrontation,” McLaughlin said.

There was a weapon used during the assault, but McLaughlin declined to say what it was, only that it was not a gun.

Alvarez is charged with second degree assault and burglary, both felonies. Wonsang is wanted for first degree assault and burglary and Dyer is wanted for conspiracy to commit first degree assault and burglary.

Dyer and Wonsang were last seen in Manchester on Wednesday. McLaughlin said they should not be approached if they are spotted.

McLaughlin can be reached at 223-8494 or via e-mail Michael.McLaughlin@dos.nh.gov.
