New Hampshire man found naked after attack on elderly man – Boston News, Weather, Sports

MANCHESTER, NH (WHDH) – A Manchester man is being held in custody after police found him standing naked next to the blood-soaked body of another man early Sunday morning.

Donald Pierce, 55, faces multiple charges after police say he attacked two people, including an 86-year-old man, and injured a dog.

Manchester Police responded to Pine Avenue at 1 a.m. on July 7 for a report of a domestic disturbance.

“Arriving officers heard someone screaming for help behind 38 Pine Ave and discovered two men,” police said in a statement. “One was lying on a porch covered in blood and the other was standing next to him completely naked.”

According to officers, the naked man, later identified as Pierce, “began yelling at police, making threats and charging at officers.” It took multiple taser deployments and multiple officers to successfully subdue the suspect.

Authorities later learned that Pierce had been involved in a physical altercation with a woman at a nearby home earlier that day.

“He then encountered an 86-year-old man who was letting his dog out,” police said in a statement. “Pierce attacked the man, striking him with fists and a chair. He also injured the man’s dog. The victim was transported to a local hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.”

It later turned out that Pierce and the victim did not know each other.

Pierce was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault (domestic violence), criminal threats, criminal damage to property, four counts of simple assault, trespassing, exhibitionism, criminal damage to property, cruelty to animals and resisting arrest.

Pierce will be held pending a probation hearing on July 16.
