Nashua resident accused of assault for allegedly punching woman

A woman filed a complaint with Nashua Police on November 2 that she had been punched multiple times by 44-year-old Darrell Roper, of Broad Street in Nashua, New Hampshire. After an initial investigation was conducted, police arrested Roper hours later.

The woman who filed the report, according to sources, suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Details were not published on the particular nature of her wounds or if she was treated in a hospital in relation to the incident.

The domestic violence unit coordinated the investigation with local police, and after his arrest, which occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Roper was charged with second degree assault domestic violence and two counts of simple assault. The charge of second degree assault is a felony, and if convicted, Roper could face up to seven years in prison. The simple assault allegations are misdemeanors and each could carry a one-year sentence. He could also be ordered to pay hefty fines in addition to serving jail time.

Since being taken into custody, Roper has been held at the Valley Street Jail on $30,000 bail. His arraignment was set for November 5 at the 9th Circuit District Division Nashua Court, though as of November 6 newspapers had not reported on the results of his court appearance or whether he had posted bail.

The relationship between the victim and the suspect was not made clear.
