Portsmouth manhunt suspect turns himself in to police
Edward T. Critten, 42, with a last known address of the Motel 6 in Portsmouth has been arrested on four counts of simple assault, one count of criminal trespass and one count of burglary.
Police began searching for Critten shortly after noon on Tuesday after responding to the area of Weald Road in the Gosling Meadows neighborhood for a report of a domestic disturbance. Officers developed probable cause to charge Critten for entering the house of the mother of his children without permission and allegedly punching her in the face and body. Police said a friend of the victim attempted to intervene and was allegedly bitten by Critten.
“We had information from witnesses that he went into the Motel 6 and that began our canvass and search of that area,” MacDonald said.
The search continued in the surrounding area until about 10 p.m. with the assistance of the Seacoast Emergency Response Team, NH State Police, Newington police and Portsmouth police. MacDonald said Portsmouth police also continued searching throughout the night.
Critten is being held on $30,000 cash bail for the five misdemeanor counts and will be formally charged with felony burglary in Portsmouth Circuit Court on Thursday morning.
As a result he was charged with a felony count of second-degree assault for biting an 11-year-old boy in the chest, as well as two misdemeanor counts of simple assault, one alleging he punched a nine-year-old child in the chest and another stating that he injured his girlfriend.
