Mass. men arraigned in 2011 home invasion
HAMPSTEAD — Two Massachusetts men were arraigned Wednesday on charges related to a home invasion in Hampstead in 2011.
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.
The two faced a separate arraignment last Friday in Massachusetts for being fugitives from justice on the Hampstead arrest warrants.
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.
The charges stem from a home invasion on Kent Farm Road on July 18, 2011.
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.
Several firearms were also stolen from the home, 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.
Menagerman faces six counts of criminal threatening with a firearm, four counts of sexual assault, five counts of simple assault, five counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, false imprisonment, second-degree assault, burglary and felonious use of a firearm.
A judge set his bail at $350,000 cash at Wednesday’s arraignment.
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.
His bail was set at $100,000 cash.
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
