Nashua man charged with beating woman and boy

NASHUA - A city man has been charged with repeatedly punching a woman and a young boy in an incident Sunday at a downtown residence.

The alleged victims, neither identified by police in a news release, were treated at a local hospital for minor injuries and bruises and then released.

Police arrested Corey Wharton, 25, on charges of second-degree assault, simple assault and obstructing the report of a crime.

Investigators learned of the incident after police were called by hospital officials concerning the alleged assaults.

Police said Wharton repeatedly punched the woman and boy and took a phone away from one of them who attempted to call 911 to report the incident.

What's next: Wharton is being held on $5,000 cash/surety bail pending arraignment Tuesday in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
