Teen assaulted Sunday is charged after school fight on Monday
MANCHESTER — A city teen who was assaulted during a brawl on Laurel Street Sunday was arraigned Tuesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on a disorderly conduct charge.
Alfred Nyonee, 18, of 82 W. Brook St., who was hit on the arm by a stick in the Laurel Street incident, was arrested Monday at Manchester High School West after a fight at the school that police say started with a tweet to which Nyonee objected and continued with an alleged exchange of blows and Nyonee shouting threats and refusing to quiet down.
Because Nyonee was out on personal recognizance bail at the time, on an attempted theft charge that alleges he attempted to steal a laptop at the school Jan. 23, he was also charged with contempt of court.
Bail on the new charges was set at $1,000 cash surety, with conditions that include no contact with the tweeter. Trial on the new charge was set for April 3, the same date as his trial on the attempted theft charge.
Charge felony level
Nicole Solomon, 24, put a Prospect Street address on her bail information form, but told a Circuit Court-Manchester District Division judge Tuesday that although she has a Central Street mailing address, she just took a job in Nashua that provides room and board.
Solomon was in court for arraignment on an attempted theft by deception charge that alleges that while in the Family Dollar Store, 403 Second St., she took several items and tried to “return” them at the register.
The charge, originally brought as a misdemeanor, was elevated to a felony because Solomon’s criminal record, which includes a number of convictions including for burglary and assault, also includes at least two theft-related convictions. That theft history makes the current theft charge a felony.
Solomon was hoping for personal recognizance bail, but Judge Gregory Michael set bail at the $1,000 cash/surety requested by a police prosecutor, saying: “She does pose a threat (to the public).” A probable cause hearing on the felony was set for March 18.
Back in court
Michael Fisher, 31, who lists the homeless shelter as his address, was in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division Tuesday for the second day in a row. But because the alleged actions that prompted the charges of simple assault and criminal threatening occurred Feb. 16, and predate the charges he was arraigned on Monday, there was no effort to revoke his bail.
The new charges, which involve the same alleged victim, were brought after further investigation into the relationship.
Because Fisher is being held on $5,000 cash/surety bail on Monday’s charges, police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier asked for $5,000 personal recognizance bail on the additional charges. Trial on all the charges is scheduled for April 2.
Says she was in rehab
Shaina Madden, 23, of 37 Appleton St., Tuesday told a Circuit Court-Manchester District Division judge that she missed her January court date on a theft charge because she was out of state in a rehab facility.
Madden is accused of stealing more than $350 in merchandise from the JC Penney store at the Mall of New Hampshire. She is also charged with a burglary.
Bail was continued at $3,000 personal recognizance, with a probable cause hearing on the felony set for April 2 and trial on the misdemeanor set for April 29.
