Pair arrested after police say they broke into residence to assault woman

NASHUA – A Nashua woman and Hudson man are charged with breaking into a residence and physically assaulting the occupant.

Hanna Diaz, 19, of Nashua but with no fixed address, and Brian Clack, 21, of 3 Raymond St., Hudson, are each charged with Class A felony burglary, police said.

A Class A felony is punishable by up to 15 years in prison plus fines.

At 10:46 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a city residence for the report of a burglary in progress, police said. The victim reported that a man and woman she knew entered her residence and assaulted her, according to police. The victim, who sustained minor injuries, provided police with first names and descriptions of the suspects, police said.

A short time later, patrol officers stopped Diaz and Clark in the immediate area. After further investigation, both were arrested without incident, police said.

The investigation was furthered by members of the Nashua Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division Burglary Unit.

Diaz and Clark were in the residence earlier in the day, and a disagreement ensued, Lt. Michael Moushegian said.

Diaz and Clark were asked to leave, Moushegian said. They returned later and forced their way inside with the intent of physically assaulting the woman, Moushegian said.

Diaz refused bail and was held at the Nashua Police Department pending arraignment in Nashua district court. Clark was held at the Nashua Police Department on $25,000 cash or surety bail pending arraignment.
