2 men accused of sexually assaulting 3 teens from center

July 25, 2019

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Two men have been charged with sexually assaulting three teenage girls who walked away from a New Hampshire center that specializes in treatment for substance use disorders and mental illness.

Police in Manchester said two of the girls, ages 15 and 16, returned to Granite Pathways late Tuesday. They said they were sexually assaulted by the two men while they were gone. They also said the third girl may be with the men.

Police found the third girl early Wednesday. They later arrested 25-year-old Matthew Hugle and 24-year-old Chasrick Heredia on charges of felonious sexual assault and delinquency.

The men faced arraignment Thursday; it wasn’t immediately known if they had lawyers.

The girls were treated at hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are investigating the connection between the teens and the men.
