Accused burglar thwarted by Nashua resident wielding machete

NASHUA — A burglar was met by a machete-wielding resident on Monday, police said.

Steven Twombley, 45, of 47 Temple St., Unit R32, pushed open the door of a third-floor residence at 23 Temple St. around 1:45 a.m. on Monday, police said.

“The victim, fearing for his safety, armed himself with a machete. During the course of the confrontation, Twombley cut his hand on the machete,” police said in a release.

Authorities said the resident did not swing the machete in the direction of Twombley but did have it in his possession during the fight. The two men were still engaged in a physical confrontation when police arrived at the scene.

Twombley, who received several stitches to his hand, was arrested and charged with a felony count of burglary. He is being held on $5,000 cash or surety bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.

If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison.
