Nashua couple charged with assaulting two boys



NASHUA — A local couple is accused of assaulting two boys over a four-month period, prompting officials to place the children into foster care.

The Division of Children, Youth and Families contacted local police at the beginning of April about an 8-year-old boy who was possibly being physically abused. Upon further investigation, it was determined that the child had bruises on his forearm and other parts of his body, said authorities.

According to police, the child was allegedly being abused by Katlyn Marin, 25, of 14 Oak St., and Michael Rivera, 30, of 526 Abbott Farm Lane, Hudson.

Detectives learned throughout the course of the investigation that a second child, a 6-year-old boy, was also allegedly abused by the couple, although he had no visible injuries.

Lt. Francis Sullivan of the Nashua Police Department’s Youth Services Division said Tuesday that the assaults took place between January and April of this year. He would not comment on whether Marin and Rivera are the parents of the two boys.

“The children are doing well,” said Sullivan, noting a court order was obtained to place the children into foster care.

On Monday, police arrested Marin and charged her with a felony count of second-degree assault and one count of simple assault. Rivera was also placed into custody and charged with two counts of second-degree assault and one count of simple assault.

The couple was arraigned Tuesday at the 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division. Bail was initially set at $25,000 cash for Rivera, and $10,000 cash for Marin.
