BEVERLY — Police say a local man was arrested after he assaulted a worker with a broken bottle at a University of New Hampshire apartment complex early Wednesday morning.
Mark Giles, 20, was arrested on a charge of felony second-degree assault after he turned himself in yesterday, according to a post on the UNH Police Department’s official Facebook page. Giles was released on $10,000 bail and is expected to appear in Dover Circuit Court on March 13.
The incident occurred about 1:30 a.m. on New Year’s night, when Giles allegedly assaulted a housing staff member at the Gables, an on-campus apartment complex at UNH’s Durham location. The victim was treated at a local hospital and then released.
Giles is not a student at the university and has been banned from its campus, according to the post.
“We will do whatever is necessary to ensure the safety of every member of our community,” police Chief Paul Dean said in the post. “When students return later this month we will remind them that they are responsible for the conduct of their guests at all times.”
Police are still trying to identify a woman who was with Giles the night of the altercation, and they urge anyone with information to contact them at 603-862-1427.
