Londonderry police say Franklin man commited sex assault while free on bail
BRENTWOOD — A Franklin man awaiting trial for allegedly having a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old Deerfield boy was arrested Tuesday for sexually assaulting a 21-year-old mentally disabled man in Londonderry, police said.
Brian Davis, 48, of 300 Prospect St., Franklin, was arraigned in 10th Circuit Court, Derry Division on three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault for allegedly forcing the Londonderry man to have sex with him in his truck on June 4.
A judge ordered Davis, a registered sex offender, held at the Rockingham County jail on $250,000 cash bail.
Davis was free on $25,000 cash bail since being indicted in February for allegedly having sexual contact with a Deerfield boy he met online, prosecutors said.
He faces charges of felonious sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child for having a sexual encounter with the Deerfield boy last Aug. 13, then soliciting him for another encounter on Sept. 26, according to indictments.
Davis allegedly solicited the victim in the latest case using a social networking app called Scruff.com, according to a police affidavit.
Davis and the victim chatted online for a few weeks before meeting, police said. The victim told police that he thought they were going to meet for coffee.
Davis drove from his home in Franklin to meet with the victim at a store in town before sexually assaulting the man, according to Londonderry prosecutor Kevin Coyle.
“He did this while he was free on bail,” Coyle said.
Davis has three prior sexual assault convictions from 2005, 2009 and 2010, according to state records.
Davis allegedly went by the name “Scott” while chatting with the Londonderry man, police said.
The man told police that “Scott” allegedly picked him up in a white truck that looked new and drove him to the back parking lot of Cinema 12 on Orchard View Drive.
Police said the victim recalled seeing names on a crumpled piece of paper in the truck that “Scott” moved after the man looked at it.
“(The victim) also said that “Scott” began texting someone ‘secretively,’” Londonderry police Detective Christopher Olson said in a sworn affidavit.
After the assault, Davis allegedly dropped off the man at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Londonderry.
“Prior to exiting the truck, ‘Scott’ told him not to call the police or he would hurt him,” Olson said in the affidavit.
The man ran into the bathroom, locked the door and called his parents, according to Olson.
Police said they were able to get a partial license plate of the truck registered to Davis. The vehicle was a 2014 GMC Sierra with New Hampshire plate “—DAVIS,” police said.
Davis initially told police that his encounter was consensual but failed to show up for an interview at the police station, Olson said in the affidavit.
Senior Assistant Attorney General James Boffetti, who is overseeing prosecutions at the county attorney’s office, said on Tuesday that county prosecutors will seek to revoke Davis’ bail.
