Manchester man attacked with hammer during home invasion


MANCHESTER - Police are investigating a home invasion on Dubuque Street early Friday in which a guest was attacked with a hammer and seriously injured.


Officers were called to Catholic Medical Center shortly after 2 a.m. Friday to speak with Brian Smithurst, 27, who sustained serious injuries to his head and face in the assault in his girlfriend's apartment at 508 Dubuque St.


Smithurst's girlfriend told police she and several friends were in her apartment when the attackers burst in through the front door.


The girlfriend said the home invaders began assaulting people in the apartment, attacking Smithurst with a hammer.


She told police she did not know the people who broke in, describing them only as several adult Hispanic males and a white adult female. She said the attackers fled after the assault.


Police Sgt. Craig Rousseau said Smithurst was transferred to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon because of the seriousness of his injuries.
