Hudson man arrested on sexual assault charge

HUDSON – Nashua and Hudson police officers collaborated Saturday in the arrest of a 34-year-old Hudson resident in connection with a sexual assault the previous day, police said.

Christopher Hanscom, of 2B Boyd Road, faces one count of aggravated felonious sexual assault, which police say stems from a report Nashua police received Feb. 10 from a female who accused Hanscom of sexually assaulting her at a Nashua residence.

Police didn’t specify the alleged victim’s age, but did say she and Hanscom know each other.

Nashua police issued a warrant for Hanscom’s arrest. They and Hudson officers arrested him around 8:30 p.m. Saturday at his Boyd Road home.

The charge is a Class A felony that is punishable by up to 15 years in state prison.

Hanscom was held on $50,000 cash-only bail pending arraignment, which was scheduled for Tuesday morning in Nashua district court.

Arraignment was initially scheduled for Monday, but the court was closed because of the snowstorm.
