Manchester teen faces new robbery charge
But a short time later, police said, Brooks was spotted running from the area and when he was stopped again, he was found in possession of the stolen items.
A probable cause hearing on the new charge was set for July 8.
Charged with stalking
George Riley, 33, of 34 Juniper Road, Bedford, pleaded innocent Monday in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division, to two charges each of violation of a protective order and stalking. Riley is accused of calling a woman at her Amory Street address May 5 and May 8 from prison despite a protective order barring contact by any means.
Can't stay away from court
Erizachart Mejias Navarro, 17, of 73 Maple St., was already scheduled for trial Aug. 14 in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division, on a simple assault charge, so Judge William Lyons Monday set trial on new charges, stemming from a weekend incident at the skate park on Maple Street, for the same day.
Police said a fourth teen, a 14-year-old, was charged with criminal mischief after he sped toward an officer on his bike, abandoning the bike and propelling it into the side of a cruiser, damaging the cruiser.
Trial on the new charges was set for Aug. 14, the same day as the assault trial.
Says he never left his porch
A city man accused of second-degree assault, simple assault and resisting arrest was arraigned Monday in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division.
Giacomo Gagnon, 32, of 160 Eddy Road, is accused of squeezing a woman's neck until she had difficulty breathing, also leaving bruises. The assault charges allege he punched her in the face and that as a result of being punched, the back of the woman's head hit the ground.
Gagnon is free on $3,000 cash/surety bail, which includes conditions barring contact with the alleged victim and barring him from her Manchester Street residence. In court Monday, he protested the charges, saying to Judge William Lyons, "I never left my porch ... She came to my house."
No reason for being there
Junior Plaisir, 26, of 743 Douglas St., pleaded innocent Monday in Circuit Court to a misdemeanor charge of possession of a prescription drug without a prescription and to a violation of loitering/prowling. Trial was set for July 24, and bail was set at $3,000 cash/surety.
The officer began to check the neighborhood and found a ransacked vehicle at a Mast Road address, although the vehicle owner was able to determine nothing was missing.
Police said the bag also contained cellphones, credit cards and an iPod Touch. Those items were seized by police until their ownership can be verified.
