Police: New Hampshire Men Charged in Unprovoked Attack

Manchester NH Fight Arrests

Two New Hampshire men face assault charges, according to Manchester police.

Twenty-year-old Christian David and 21-year-old Trevor Hodgeman, both Manchester residents, are accused of attacking two men in an unprovoked attack on Mechanic Street just before 2 a.m. on Sunday.

Police say the victims were walking on Mechanic Street when Hodgeman challenged them to a fight. Despite the victim's refusals to be part of it, David and Hodgeman allegedly knocked them to the ground and began kicking and punching them as the victims tried to cover their faces and heads.

One victim's eye was deeply cut in addition to having bruises and scrapes on his body and was taken to a local hospital for treatment, while the other victim, who also had cuts and bruises from the attack, refused treatment.

David also took money from one of the victims and damaged his phone after the assault, according to police.

Police say David, who was uncooperative in their investigation, tried to struggle with an officer before he was placed into custody.

David was charged with robbery, second degree assault, criminal mischief and resisting arrest. He was released on $10,000 and is due back in court on July 19.

Hodgeman was charged with second degree assault and is due in court on July 13.
