Manchester Crimewatch: Man accused of new crimes while out on bail faces hearing
MANCHESTER — A bail revocation hearing is scheduled Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division for Akim Alleyne, 23, of 402 Auburn St., who is accused of committing new crimes while out on bail.
Police prosecutors filed the bail revocation motion because Alleyne, who is scheduled for trial Aug. 14 on charges of simple assault, false imprisonment and criminal mischief stemming from an argument with a woman in an Elmwood Gardens parking lot June 28, was arraigned Tuesday on new charges.
The two new felony charges of second-degree assault, as well as charges of simple assault, criminal threatening and unauthorized use of a vehicle, involve a different female.
The new charges allege that on July 28, at a Hayward Street address, Alleyne twice squeezed an ex-girlfriend’s throat to the point she had difficulty breathing; punched her in the face with a closed fist, kicked her and hit her with a broom; hit her on the back of the head with a notebook, causing her to stumble and fall on a bed; said he was going to kill her and the father of her children; and took a vehicle belonging to her without permission.
A probable cause hearing on the two felony charges was set for Aug. 11, so a judge can determine if there is sufficient evidence to send the case to a Hillsborough County North grand jury for possible indictment. A status hearing on the misdemeanor charges was set for Aug. 14, the same day as Alleyne’s trial on the June 28 charges.
Allegedly not his to sell
Shawn Cartier, 35, of 33 Algonquin Ave., Antrim, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to misdemeanor charges of theft by deception and receiving stolen property.
Cartier is accused of selling 22 DVDs and video games belonging to another person to Good Still Pawn, 270 Amory St., for $40 on May 6. The items had a value of $460.
A trial was scheduled for Sept. 3. Bail was set at $2,000 personal recognizance, with conditions that bar contact with the owner of the items and bar Cartier from the pawn shop.
Paint, graffiti left behind
Police said Joseph Rockwell, 19, of Hooksett left behind cans of spray paint and fresh graffiti when he jumped from the roof of the Get-A-Way Lounge, 157 Franklin St., about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Officer Eric Joyal reported he was patrolling the area when he saw Rockwell and ordered him to stop, but Rockwell fled.
Joyal notified dispatch that he was searching for the “artist,” and other officers joined the search, finding Rockwell hiding in an area of overgrown weeds and shrubbery at the rear of the Elm Street Shell gas station. Police said he was taken into custody without incident.
At about the same time, Joyal located cans of spray paint and fresh graffiti on the side of the Get-A-Way Lounge, and Rockwell was charged with criminal mischief and resisting detention.
