HAMPSTEAD – Abraham Depaula, 25, whose last known address was 52 North St., Haverhill, Mass., is the third person to be arrested in a case relating to a July 18, 2011 home invasion on Kent Farm Road.
According to Hampstead Police Lt. John Frazier, “Depaula, who has been incarcerated in Massachusetts, was arrested on our warrant on June 18 by Detective Robert Kelley at the Rockingham County Jail, after he was transported from Massachusetts. He is charged with three felonies: conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit theft and felonious use of firearms.”
Previously arrested and charged were Max Menagerman, 24, 127 Winter St., Haverhill, Mass., and Angel Sanchez, 22, 52 North St., Haverhill, Mass. They were arraigned in Salem, Mass., District Court on Nov. 15, 2013 for being fugitives from justice on the Hampstead warrants. Both suspects had been incarcerated in Massachusetts on charges from that state for the past two years.
Depaula’s case was continued for a probable cause hearing set for July 11 at Plaistow District Court, with $50,000 cash only bail, Frazier said.
During the home invasion, the male homeowner was assaulted, bound and tortured; his female companion was subjected to acts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, Frazier said, adding that several firearms were also stolen from the home.
The fourth person tied to this case, Avery Walker, 21, 93 Whites Lane, Haverhill, Mass., was convicted in the spring of 2012 for conspiracy to commit burglary.
