Londonderry man charged with ax attack on uncle

LONDONDERRY -A Londonderry man will appear in court Monday morning after allegedly striking his uncle with an ax.

Aaron McDermott, 33, faces charges of second-degree assault, criminal threatening with a deadly weapon, criminal trespassing, possession of controlled drugs and three counts of obstructing a report of a crime or injury.

Police arrested McDermott Wednesday afternoon after responding to a 911 call from his uncle, Marc Vitti.

According to Police Lt. Tim Jones, Vitti claimed McDermott struck him in the back and elbow with an ax during an altercation at their Boston Avenue home.

Jones said Vitti's injuries weren't serious and he wasn't hospitalized following the incident.

Shortly after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Officer Narcisco Garcia responded to Vitti's call for help after the victim reportedly made several earlier attempts to dial 911, which were allegedly blocked by McDermott.

Police arrested McDermott at the scene, where they discovered drugs believed to be heroin on the premises.

McDermott was being held at Rockingham County Jail on $50,000 cash bail and will appear in the Derry District Court Monday morning for a probable cause hearing.
