Nashua police charge man with stalking, assaulting woman
NASHUA – A man is facing several charges, after police allege he stalked and assaulted a woman.
Craig Michaud, of no fixed address, was arrested Thursday and charged with domestic violence: stalking, a Class B felony, and two counts of domestic violence, a Class A misdemeanor.
Nashua police responded to the victim’s Auburn Street address for a report of stalking, which was a violation of domestic violence bail conditions. Police said they learned through the investigation that Michaud had assaulted the victim twice during their contact. Police determined Michaud had been previously convicted of stalking, making the offense a felony.
Michaud was being held without bail, pending an arraignment at Nashua district court Tuesday. A Class B felony is punishable by up to seven years in prison, exclusive of fines. Class A misdemeanors are punishable by up to one year commitment in the county Department of Corrections, exclusive of fines.
