Nashua man accused of hitting girl with hanger

A Nashua man was arrested Wednesday on two counts of second-degree assault for allegedly assaulting a juvenile girl about three weeks ago.

David Baez, 37, of 4 Foundry St., is accused of striking the girl twice in her leg with a clothes hanger, causing bruising, police said. The girl is unknown to Baez and under 13 years old.

The alleged assault was reported to the Youth Services Division on April 11, police said.

Investigators enlisted the help of the Granite State Children's Alliance, a nonprofit group that helps children who may be victims or witnesses of crime.

Baez is being held on $5,000 bail pending arraignment on the felonies Thursday.
