Nashua police retrieve sex-assault suspect from New  York City 

By DEAN SHALHOUP

NASHUA - Detectives from Nashua teamed with New York City officers over the weekend to track down and take into custody Felix Perez, a Bronx resident who is accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl in Nashua over several months.
Perez, 46, of 2430 Morris Ave., Apt. 40B, waived extradition Sept. 16 at a brief hearing in New York, and was returned to New Hampshire the next day to await arraignment.
That proceeding took place Monday morning in Nashua district court, where Perez was arraigned on three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, which stem from an investigation Nashua police said they launched upon learning of the allegations on Sept. 13.
Judge Paul Moore, who arraigned Perez via video conference from Valley Street jail in Manchester, agreed to prosecutors' recommendation to continue Perez's $200,000 cash-only bail pending a probable cause hearing Moore set for 8:15 a.m. Sept. 28 in the Nashua court.
Police prosecutor Donald Topham cited "the extremely heinous nature" of the allegations in recommending high bail for Perez.
The alleged victim “is 11 years old, he's 46; he has no ties to New Hampshire," Topham told Moore. "Nashua police had to go to New York City to get him and bring him back."
Perez had little to say in response to his bail amount, telling Moore only, "I can't afford $200,000 in cash."
The charges accuse Perez of forcible rape, physically forcing the alleged victim to perform sex acts upon him, and engaging in a pattern of sexual assaults defined as "on more than one occasion" between April 1 and Aug. 20.
Police said the alleged assaults occurred at a Nashua residence, and that the victim is known to Perez.
