Laconia man arrested on sexual assault charge
LACONIA -- Police arrested a Laconia man Sunday night on a sexual assault charge.
On Saturday, police were called to Lakes Region General Hospital to investigate a sexual assault that the victim said took place Friday, Jan. 17.
Police say further investigation led them to issue an arrest warrant for Fatmir Gasi, 52, of 72 Batchelder St., on a charge of aggravated felonious sexual assault.
Police said physical force was used to over power the victim. According to police, the victim and Gasi had what they would term a "casual" acquaintance.
Gasi was arrested at 8 p.m. Sunday. He refused bail, and is being held at the Belknap County Jail pending arraignment on Tuesday.
