Manchester Crimewatch: City man charged with threatening, reckless conduct released on bail

MANCHESTER — A man accused of felony reckless conduct and misdemeanor criminal threatening Friday asked a Circuit Court-Manchester District Division judge for personal recognizance bail.

Frank Pickering, 30, said he could stay with his mother at 20 Barton Hill Road, Loudon. He said he has no money for cash/surety bail. “Currently, I’m unemployed,” said Pickering, who said he was laid off and hasn’t started receiving unemployment compensation.

“This whole argument started over money,” said Pickering, who is accused of throwing a knife at a door after his girlfriend went through it. He’s also accused of telling her: “You better call the cops because I’m going to kill you.”

Police prosecutors had requested $2,500 cash/surety bail, but Judge William Lyons reduced the bail to $1,500 cash/surety with conditions barring contact with the alleged victim and barring him from a Valley Street address.

Because no plea can be entered to a felony in Circuit Court, a probable cause hearing was set for April 9. Trial on the misdemeanor was set for April 29.

Mom charged

Chrissy Bruscato, 33, pleaded innocent Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a misdemeanor charge of simple assault. Bruscato, who said she is living with her parents at 6 Feng Drive, Raymond, is accused of assaulting her 16-year-old daughter on Sept. 9, 2013, at a Bradley Street residence.

Court documents show Bruscato, who does not have custody of the girl, went to the Bradley Street address where her daughter lives with Bruscato’s ex-boyfriend.

Bruscato allegedly was engaged in an argument and pushed the girl toward a bathroom door, causing the girl to fall and hit her face on the frame. According to court documents, the girl suffered a cut and swollen lip and a minor abrasion on one knee.

Bail for Bruscato was continued at $1,000 personal recognizance, with conditions barring contact with her daughter and barring her from the Bradley Street address. Trial was set for May 7.

Assault charge

Murat Mehmedovic, 18, of 1448 Elm St., pleaded innocent Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to misdemeanor charges of simple assault and criminal mischief.

Mehmedovic is accused of shoving his mother, pushing her back into a counter, and of damaging a number of items, including a stove burner, picture frame and plate.

Bail was continued at $1,000 personal recognizance, with conditions barring contact with his mother. Trial was set for May 7.
