Manchester man accused of violating bail conditions

MANCHESTER — Hernan Rios Calderon, 26, of 209 Wilson St., was arraigned Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on a felony stalking charge that alleges he violated bail conditions on a January stalking charge, scheduled for trial April 9, by having contact with his alleged victim on Feb. 24.

Because he allegedly violated bail conditions, police prosecutors filed a motion to revoke his bail and have him held until his trial. A hearing on the motion was set for Thursday.

According to court documents, the alleged victim told police that when Rios Calderon saw her parked car on Massabesic Street, he made a U-turn, pulled up next to her vehicle and got out and pounded on her car window, demanding to know why she ignored his calls and texts. She told police she was frightened and told him to leave or she would call police. He left and she went home and called police.

The charge was brought as a felony because Rios Calderon was previously convicted of stalking, on Aug. 12, 2011. No plea can be entered to a felony charge in Circuit Court, so a probable cause hearing was set for March 18.

Accused of punching boyfriend

Elliana Ramirez, 19, of 84 Karatzas Ave., pleaded innocent Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a simple assault charge that alleges she punched her boyfriend Tuesday at the Karatzas Avenue address.

Bail was continued at $1,000 personal recognizance, with conditions that bar contact with the alleged victim and bar Ramirez from a specific Rimmon Street address. Trial was set for April 7.

Bail moot for inmate

Alexander Cummings, 18, a New Hampshire State Prison inmate since Feb. 24, was arraigned Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on a misdemeanor charge of disobeying a police officer and a speeding violation.

Cummings, formerly of 82 W. Hillcrest Ave., allegedly failed to stop Jan. 22 when a police officer, with signals activated, sought to stop Cummings on Brown Avenue for speeding.

Bail was set at $1,000 cash/surety and trial was set for April 9.

On probation in Massachusetts

Joshua Silva, 27, of 295 Jackson St., Lawrence, Mass., was arraigned Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on a felony charge of unarmed robbery and misdemeanors of unauthorized use of a vehicle and a subsequent offense of operating after suspension.

Silva is accused of taking a $417 water heater from a shelf at Home Depot, 129 March Ave., Oct. 12, 2013, and “returning” it for cash. He’s accused of punching a loss prevention officer in the face and of fleeing in a vehicle belonging to his cousin, who told police she had not given him permission to use the car, which she said was supposed to be undergoing servicing.

Silva told Judge William Lyons that he had to continue living in Massachusetts because he is on probation there. “It’s very shameful to stand up here,” he said.

According to information he provided for a bail commissioner, Silva previously worked for a Derry-based roofing company. He also said his criminal record consists of three larceny convictions, one conviction of endangering the welfare of a child and one of disobeying a police officer.

Silva is free on $1,000 cash/surety bail, with conditions barring him from Home Depot and from contact with his cousin. A probable cause hearing on the felony charge was set for April 2 and trial on the misdemeanors was set for April 30.

Cash/surety bail this time

Evan Sanborn, 23, of 27 Leo St., was released on personal recognizance bail after his arrest Jan. 31 on misdemeanor charges of theft by unauthorized taking and resisting arrest. Sanborn is accused of stealing $109.99 in merchandise from the Sears store in the Mall of New Hampshire and of struggling with an officer seeking to handcuff him.

But when Sanborn failed to appear for arraignment Feb. 13 in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division, an electronic bench warrant was issued and bail was set at $1,000 cash/surety.

Judge William Lyons granted the request of police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier to have that bail continued until trial, which is scheduled for April 8.

Bail revocation hearing set

A bail revocation hearing is set for Thursday morning in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division for Juan Valdez Ochoa, who was arraigned Wednesday on a new stalking charge.

Valdez Ochoa, 21, of 27 Elm St., was out on $1,000 personal recognizance bail on a Feb. 8 stalking charge, scheduled for trial March 19, when he allegedly stalked the woman again.

He is accused of being within 300 feet of a residence Tuesday while his alleged victim was inside, in violation of conditions of the February charge. Trial on the new stalking charge was set for April 8.
