Hampton man indicted for Poker Room assault, robbery


BRYAN LISIO 

BRENTWOOD — A man who allegedly bragged to a friend about getting into a fight, showing off a bloodied $20 bill, has been indicted for allegedly beating and robbing a 64-year-old man at gunpoint outside of the Poker Room in Hampton Falls, according to prosecutors.

Bryan Lisio, 25, of Hampton is facing two counts of felony robbery and two counts of second-degree assault for the Jan. 31 attack.

Lisio, who is being held at the county jail, will be arraigned on the charges later this month in Rockingham County Superior Court.

He faces up to 3½ to 7 years in state prison on each of the charges if he is convicted. Lisio, a former Poker Room employee, also went to a bar called Stacey Jane’s on the night of the assault, where he told a friend that he had been in a fight earlier in the night, police said.

That’s when he showed the friend the $20 bill with blood on it, a police affidavit says.

The friend told police he knew that Lisio owned a BB gun that resembled a handgun. Lisio also told the friend that he left behind evidence at the scene of the assault that would implicate him, court records say.

The victim, Robert Carleton, told police how he fought off his attacker outside of the Poker Room, fearing that he was going to be killed, according to court records.

Carleton told police he arrived at the Poker Room around 7 p.m. to play cards.

When he got out of his car, a man dressed in black and armed with a handgun approached Carleton and ordered him to get on his knees, police said. Carleton ran toward the Poker Room.

The robber caught him by the jacket and dragged him between two cars before striking him in the head with the gun, police said. Carleton struggled with the robber, but was dragged between the Poker Room and the Hampton Falls Inn, according to police.

Lisio made off with $80 from the alleged robbery and fled from the scene, but left behind a black ball cap, police said. Police also recovered blood-stained leaves, handcuffs and a large quantity of loose gloves.

At the time of the robbery, Lisio was on probation from Newburyport (Mass.) District Court for violating a restraining order in an unrelated case. His probation was due to end on March 21.
