Mass. men arraigned in 2011 home invasion
Max Menagerman, 24, of 127 Winter St., Haverhill, and Angel Sanchez, 22, of 52 North St., Haverhill, were ordered held at the Rockingham County jail on high cash bail during a video arraignment at the Salem Circuit Court.
They spent the past two years jailed in Massachusetts on charges in that state and waived extradition, clearing the way for their return to New Hampshire.
According to Hampstead police, Menagerman and Sanchez are two of four suspects allegedly involved in the incident. The male homeowner was assaulted, bound and tortured, and his female companion was sexually assaulted, police said.
Arrest warrants are still pending for a third suspect, Abraham Depaula, 24, of Haverhill, who is currently incarcerated in Massachusetts.
A fourth person tied to this case, Avery Walker, 21, of 93 Whites Lane, Haverhill, was convicted of a conspiracy to commit burglary charge in 2012, police said.
Sanchez is charged with criminal threatening, theft, criminal liability for conduct of another to aggravated felonious sexual assault, false imprisonment, burglary and felonious use of a firearm.
Probable cause hearings for both men are scheduled for Nov. 25 at 10 a.m. in the Plaistow Circuit Court.
The arrests were part of a lengthy investigation headed up by Hampstead Detective Robert Kelley and involved the Hampstead Police Department with help from police in Manchester, Haverhill, Mass., Massachusetts State Police and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.email@example.com
