Hanover assault suspects arraigned, man out of hospital
The student, 23-year-old Hubert Clark, was taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon with non-life-threatening injuries, Police Chief Charlie Dennis said.
His alleged attackers, Mark J. Ruppel, 26, of Canaan, and Troy C. Schwarz, 20, of Lebanon, have been charged with felony counts of robbery, second degree assault and falsifying physical evidence.
Dartmouth security was notified around 12:08 a.m. of an assault in progress on the Dartmouth Green involving one victim and three assailants.
“The assailants attacked Mr. Clark by surprise and continued to strike and kick the victim after he was on the ground,” police said.
Ruppel and Swartz were arraigned Wednesday in the 2nd Circuit Court District Division in Lebanon.
Dennis said bail was set for Ruppel at $25,000 cash and Schwarz bail was set at $10,000 cash.
