Jury finds Raymond man guilty of assaulting man with a pipe, threatening ex-girlfriend


BRENTWOOD — After a two-day trial, a jury has found a Raymond man guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and attacking a man who was with her with a steel pipe.

According to the Union Leader, Matthew Guilmette, 33, of Old Ham Road in Raymond was found guilty by a jury in Rockingham Superior Court of two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of criminal threatening, and single counts of criminal mischief and simple assault.

Prosecutors said Guilmette attacked the 27-year-old man when he brought Guilmette’s then-girlfriend to Guilmette's home so she could remove some personal items.

Guilmette “became outraged and viciously attacked the male victim with a steel pipe," prosecutors said in a statement released Friday.

Guilmette also smashed the front and rear windows of the man's car as well as denting the body. He threatened to shoot his ex-girlfriend and dragged her on the ground by her hair, prosecutors said.

Guilmette faces up to 10½ to 21 years in state prison. He is expected to be sentenced on Feb. 17.
