Bail revoked for Nashua man accused of stabbing pair outside restaurant
NASHUA – A man accused of stabbing two people outside a restaurant in November was arraigned Tuesday and saw his bail revoked in Hillsborough County Superior Court.
Sean Hendricks, 21, formerly of Nashua, is charged with stabbing two men in the face on Nov. 13. He was out on bail during the alleged incident on an assault charge from Aug. 14, accused of striking a man with a metal mop handle.
Coincidentally, Hendricks was due in court Nov. 14 on a motion to have bail that was imposed for the August assault reduced.
In the November incident, Hendricks had an altercation with a woman outside the Caribbean Tropical Cafe at 60 W. Hollis St., and two men stepped in on her behalf, police said.
Hendricks then stabbed the two men with a small knife, causing serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police said. The adult woman involved suffered superficial injuries in the incident, police said.
In court Tuesday, First Assistant Hillsborough County Attorney Patricia LaFrance asked the court to order Hendricks to forfeit his $500 cash bail and to pay $10,000 personal recognizance bail.
His attorney, Charles Temple, argued bail should only be forfeited or imposed for not appearing in court, not for alleged criminal behavior committed while on bail.
Hendricks didn’t miss a court date, Temple said.
Judge Diane Nicolosi revoked Hendricks’ bail but said she would rule later on the monetary issue.
