Derry man charged in hammer attack to be treated at state hospital
Judge David Anderson agreed to temporarily free Decoste so he could undergo treatment at New Hampshire Hospital.
He faces up to 7½ to 15 years in prison if he is convicted of the assault charges.
When police arrived at Decoste’s apartment, he allegedly charged at the officers from his bedroom and swung the claw end of a hammer at the head of Derry police Officer Peter Houlis, according to court records.
During a struggle with the officers, Decoste also grabbed onto the grip of Sgt. Shawn O’Donaghue’s firearm and tried to remove it from the holster, according to the indictment.
Anderson said in a court order that Decoste will remain at the hospital “until NHH staff deem it appropriate to discharge the defendant.”
