An arrest warrant has been issued for a man who allegedly assaulted another man outside a bar in Dover, New Hampshire earlier this month.
Dover Police on Thursday issued a warrant for the arrest of Thomas Joy, 24, of 132 Rochester Hill Road, Rochester. He is described as being about 6'1" tall, weighing 170 lbs., with brown eyes and brown hair.
The warrant charges Joy with second degree assault.
On April 2, 33-year-old Nate Jones of Somersworth suffered significant injuries when he was assaulted outside the Dover Brickhouse restaurant. His jaw had to be wired shut following the attack, which appeared to be unprovoked.
The case received widespread attention after surveillance video of the assault was released to members of the media. Dover Police said they received numerous tips from the public as a result, some of which were instrumental in the investigation that led to the arrest warrant being issued.
Dover business owners banded together to offer a $2,000 reward in hopes of solving the crime.
Joy's whereabouts are unknown, and anyone with information about his location is asked to call Dover Police at 603-742-4646. People wishing to remain anonymous can call the Dover Crimeline at 603-749-6000 or go to dovernhcrimeline.org.
