HAMPSTEAD — A man was arrested on domestic assault charges this weekend after police say he hit his wife and threw a can of paint at her car.
Nathan Littlefield, 38, of Hampstead was arrested at his home on Saturday morning after his wife initially contacted police seeking a restraining order, Lt. John Frazier said.
Littlefield is charged with multiple counts of assault and individual counts of criminal threatening and criminal mischief. His bail was set at $2,500, which a family member posted for him, according to Frazier.
He is scheduled to be arraigned in 10th Circuit Court in Plaistow on Nov. 5.
Littlefield’s wife first contacted Hampstead police at around 11:45 p.m. Friday after leaving her home. The officer speaking to her determined she was assaulted by Littlefield, Frazier said.
The officer asked her to come to the station to make a statement. When she arrived, the officer saw evidence of an assault, Frazier said.
She told police that when trying to leave her home, Littlefield threw a can of white paint at her car. That led to the criminal mischief charge, Frazier said.
He also threatened to kill her and her children if she called police, which led to the criminal threatening charge, Frazier said.
An emergency restraining order against Littlefield was issued out of Brentwood Family Court. A hearing for that has been scheduled for Sept. 27.
