Thornton man accused of assaulting infant
CONCORD - A Grafton County man has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend's 3-month-old daughter and threatening to kill a woman who took the baby to police.
Joshua Hutchins, 22, of Thornton was arraigned Friday in Concord District Court on charges of second-degree assault, criminal threatening, endangering the welfare of a child and one count of simple assault.
Concord Police Lt. Timothy O'Malley said a witness reported seeing Hutchins violently shake the baby on Wednesday in Penacook.
The woman then took the baby to Cocord police and along the way said she received a call from Hutchins, who threatened to stab her.
Police said Hutchins called the witness again, this time threatening to grab the baby and kill the woman.
O'Malley said the witness was not the baby's mother, who officers learned had been assaulted by Hutchins on Tuesday.
The baby was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and was still being evaluated on Friday, O'Malley said.
Hutchins was being held $30,000 cash-only bail and ordered not to have any contact with the baby, her mother or any witnesses.
