KENSINGTON — A pair from Kensington is facing charges after an alleged sexual assault last weekend.

Matthew Biggar, 29, and Ranika Wilcox, 21, both of 229 North Haverhill Road, were arrested Monday in Seabrook following an investigation that began Sunday when police received a report of a sexual assault.

Kensington police Sgt. Scott Sanders described the victim as an adult who was an "invited guest." He declined to say where the alleged assault occurred, saying only that it happened in Kensington.

"It wasn't a random (assault)," said Sanders, who would not provide the age or gender of the victim.

Biggar was charged with three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault and one count of prohibited sales. Wilcox faces one count of aggravated felonious sexual assault and one count of prohibited sales.

The two were arraigned Tuesday morning in the Brentwood Circuit Court. Biggar was ordered held at the Rockingham County jail on $25,000 cash or bond while Wilcox's bail was set at $5,000 cash or bond.

Sanders said he doesn't anticipate additional charges in the case.

Police were assisted with the investigation and arrests by police from Amesbury, Mass., East Kingston, Hampton Falls, and Seabrook.
