Details become public in off-duty assault case against Plaistow detective

Newton police responded to a 911 call from Larson’s home after Wickson allegedly groped a 21-year-old woman and later pushed her boyfriend, Travis Larson, toward a car while holding a knife to his throat saying, “shut up or I’ll slice you,” according to court records.
Wickson had left the area before Newton police arrived, prosecutors said. The case was eventually turned over to state police.
Portsmouth defense lawyer Brian Lavallee has disputed the state’s version of events, saying his client adamantly denies the charges.
“The number of charges isn’t what matters,” Lavallee said. “It’s the quality of the evidence that matters.”
Wickson was placed on unpaid administrative leave following his indictment in October. He was also removed from the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force.
