Merrimack man charged in Valentine's Day assault


MERRIMACK — A local man was arrested after a domestic assault the evening of Valentine's Day, according to police.

Joshua Danforth, 28, was arrested at his apartment complex after a neighbor called police around 8 p.m. Friday to report hearing a woman screaming next door. Police refused to release the address yesterday.

Danforth was charged with domestic/simple assault and domestic/false imprisonment for allegedly holding the victim down. He also was charged with theft by unauthorized taking, for allegedly taking the victim's phone and stealing the "SIM" card from it, a data card that contains subscriber information.

He was being held on $3,000 cash bail at Hillsborough County Jail pending a court hearing Tuesday in 9th Circuit Court, Merrimack district.
