Nashua Man Arrested for Kidnapping after Domestic Dispute
On April 7, 2012 at approximately 7:00 am the Pelham Police Department responded to the Highland Avenue Apartment complex regarding damage that had been done to a vehicle in the parking lot.
Arriving officers spoke to the property manager who reported that he had come out into the parking lot and found one of his tenants vehicle’s had been damaged, the driver’s side window had been broken, and a broken cellular phone was on the ground next to the vehicle.
Officers were able to confirm that the vehicle belonged to a tenant in the complex and they attempted to make contact with the resident at her apartment and were unable to locate her.
Several hours later, at approximately 12:30, officers observed the vehicle being operated on Highland Avenue and stopped the vehicle in order to investigate the damage to the vehicle.
In stopping the vehicle the officer found the female owner of the vehicle to be crying and noticeably upset. The female then described to the officer the previous evening/mornings events.
The female reported to police that the previous evening she had met with Shaun Beaudry, 33 years of age from Nashua, NH in the parking lot of the Highland Ave. Apartments. Mr. Beaudry is known to the victim and that Beaudry is alleged to have wanted to meet with the victim to discuss their previous failed relationship. The victim reports that the discussion turned violent and that she attempted to get away from Beaudry by locking herself in her vehicle and calling 911 and when she attempted to do so Beaudry broke the window of her vehicle and forcibly took her cell phone away from her and destroyed it prior to the 911 call being made.
The victim then attempted to flee on foot and ran to the apartment complex and attempted to get the attention of other tenants by ringing their door buzzers. Beuadry allegedly followed the victim and forcibly removed her back to her apartment where she was held during the evening against her will.
In interviewing the victim officers learned that the victim and Beaudry were actually in the apartment when officers had responded to the initial criminal mischief report and that she feared for her safety and was not able to cry out to the officers in fear of what Beaudry would do to her. The victim further explained that just prior to being stopped by the officer that Beaudry had learned that the police had been contacted and that he had fled the area on foot and she had the opportunity to flee the area to request assistance.
An arrest warrant was then issued for the arrest of Shaun Beaudry charging him with the following offenses;
Simple Assault, Class A Misdemeanor
Obstructing the report of Crime or Injury, Class A Misdemeanor
(2) Criminal Mischief, Class A Misdemeanor
Beaudry was taken into custody by the Salem, NH Police after officers learned that he was employed in Salem and requested that Salem Police check his place of employment. Once he was arrested in Salem he was transferred to Pelham where he was booked on his charges.
Beaudry was arraigned before the 10th Circuit –District Division – Salem, NH on April 9 and has been released on $10,000.00 cash bail pending a further hearing on April 17, 2012 @ 8:00 am
