A Nashua man was arrested Thursday and charged with assaulting a woman and being a wanted fugitive.

Nashua police were called to a city hospital around 5 a.m. Thursday for the report of a woman who told doctors her boyfriend had assaulted her in her apartment. The woman said the man had pulled her hair and pushed her to the floor several times, police said, causing minor injuries to her face.

Police arrested Theodore Whitely, 34, of 7 Digital Drive, at his home shortly before 7 a.m. and charged him with three counts of domestic violence-simple assault, Class A misdemeanors.

Police also learned authorities in Massachusetts had issued a warrant for Whitely’s arrest for a probation violation stemming from an assault and battery charge. Whitely was then charged with being a fugitive from justice, a Class B felony, police said.

Whitely is being held without bail pending his arraignment at Nashua district court and extradition to Massachusetts, police said.

The Class B felony is punishable by up to seven years in prison, plus fines, and the Class A misdemeanors are each punishable by up to a year in jail, plus fines, police said.
