    Woman Attacked in Parking Lot of New Hampshire Gym

    New Hampshire police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who was caught on surveillance video assaulting a woman outside a gym last week in Rochester.

    (Published Tuesday, June 20, 2017)

    A Portsmouth man has been sentenced to two to five years in prison for punching a woman more than 40 times outside a fitness club.

    Twenty-three-year-old Jordan Lamonde was convicted this month of second-degree assault for beating a woman outside the Rochester Planet Fitness in 2017. Both sides agreed the motive was revenge; the woman's then-boyfriend stole a safe containing $30,000 from Lamonde. The attack was caught on Planet Fitness' surveillance cameras.

    The Portsmouth Herald reports that during a sentencing hearing Wednesday, Lamonde fought back tears and apologized for the attack, adding that the victim "didn't deserve that at all. I feel bad for her." His attorney had requested a one-year sentence, with all but 60 days suspended, but the judge agreed with the prosecution's request.

    The woman did not attend the sentencing.
